In 2008, the ASF did participate in
https://developers.google.com/open-source/ghop/ which was the
precursor of GCI.

To get a feel for what was done, see
https://code.google.com/p/google-highly-open-participation-asf/issues/list
(look for "all issues", not just open ones)

Nothing earth-shattering, but I have good memories of coordinating
that, and our projects got some good stuff out of it AFAICS.

If someone's willing to lead our participation in GCI that would be a
good thing IMO.
