Speaking for myself only, I'm not sure db.apache.org is in a good position 
to incubate projects composed largely or exclusivly of non-apache folks 
right now.  You might want to consider <http://incubator.apache.org/> or 
<http://jakarta.apache.org/commons> as a better starting point (perhaps 
eventually moving to a part of the db.apache project).  You could also do 
worse than starting out at sourceforge and migrating to apache once you've 
got a stronger community.
