Thanks very much for letting us know.

Having a "c#" commons at Apache would be a nice idea.

However practically, it would be a lot of work. Websites would need to
be set up, mailing lists, etc.

And proper "project management" of the code would be awkward; it would
be difficult to find enough existing apache committers
interested/qualified to review c# code and "bootstrap" a c# community
here. Apache is not a "sourceforge"; ASF projects strive to have good
levels of quality control and provide long-term support for code it
releases, but that does mean that getting new projects started is harder.

So for the moment, I would suggest setting up your project elsewhere,
but using the APL2.0 license. At some time in the future, if enough c#
interest builds up here then we could possibly talk about a merger. In
the meantime, as mentioned by another poster, it would be great if you
could add a note on the wiki pointing at your project.
