Betreff: We want to donate a XML / Cocoon / EJB / WebStart - based CMS 


we've developed a XML-based Content Management System based on different
technologies like Cocoon, XML, EJB and a WebStart Client Application. It
is in our interest, that we contribute this project with about 200.000
Lines of Code to the Apache Foundation. I've already written to the
Incubator project and I'm searching for a sponsoring Apache member  or a
major project to get the project on the road. It uses a lot of Cocoon,
so it might be a subproject of Cocoon, but it might be run with another
"Rendering-Engine" as well. As it is based on XML Content it might be
also interesting for the Apache XML project - but most of the code is
not related to XML anyway. So the third project in the round - Jakarta -
is comming in the light. Just for your interest: The project is existing
since one year at our company as a closed source application. We've
already running many websites with the CMS', but it was one of the major
interests of our initial customer, that we will open the source for
everyone. IMHO Apache is the best point for let the project fly into the
sky of open source. Currently there are three developers envolved into
the project and actually coding. I have already done some stuff for
different open source projects and also contributed to the Apache James
project - tried to reorganize the IMAP4 code. (Because of my 16h/day
fulltime efford on this CMS project it was impossible to do anything
else) So let me know how I can show you how powerful this project is and
how I can convince you to become the CMS a subproject of one of your

Please let me know what else could I do to, if this is not the right way
for seeking a sponsoring Apache member.
