Actually theres no community requirement to *enter* the incubator -
just to exit it. Thats one of the main purposes of incubation -
creating a community. The real requirment is gathering mentors and
pursuading the incubator folks (or other sponsoring PMC) that its a
good idea.

We have a policy that any ASF committer can start something in our
Sandbox. Usually though this is people starting out from scratch, not
importing an existing code base from outside the ASF (and Apache Labs
is similar). For importing an existing code base then at a minimum we
would probably need to at least use the Incubator IP Clearance check
list (the Mantissa contribution to Commons Math did this a while back,
so the archives may give you some pointers).

So I think its really down to you on the route you want to take -
whether here or elsewhere
