here are two interesting links for you:

http://www.apache.org/foundation/getinvolved.html
http://commons.apache.org/volunteering.html

>From my own experience, people at commons are very nice and help
quickly with applying patches. But getting commit access is a time
consuming task, esspecially if you work for sandbox components. You
better start with proper components where most comitters have much
attention, grow into the community and then work at sandbox
components. Sandbox stuff draw not too much attention from the
comitters, this is the problem for contributors. For example, i
started to contribute to compress (which was a sandbox component till
friday) before years and I am still a contributer. Well, fun counts
and you should not set the comitter acess as your main goal, but the
success and elegance of the API you work on.

At least you'll have to invest some time. If you start you better take
a long breath and learn to be patient :-)

The API you proposed itself looks interesting - can you explain the
main differences to chain?

Best regards + good luck,
Christian
