Welcome! I am not on the PMC, but commons is a pretty easy place to work. If you would like
to move Convert from dormant into the sandbox I suspect you would meet little resistence since
the policy here is failry liberal with respect to giving ASF committers access to the commons

Commons has a dormant Convert sub-project, and I believe that would be a good place for our
library. In other words, I would be interested in adopting the Convert project.

I'm not sure where that would fit into the Commons project. I expect it to be developed further
into a complete calendaring code library.
