Just be conscious of the fact that, with all open source projects, time
is usually volunteer/as available/as the urge strikes. I wouldn't start
to get anxious for a couple of weeks. (some take longer, but I'm anxious
by then)

As for forking -> commons, remember licensing issues. GPL/LGPL != ASL.
In order for ASL to come into the picture you'd have to not fork but
start from scratch. IANAL, but that's how it's been presented before.
