-        <p>The first thing you will want to do is find a
-
-          <strong>Champion</strong> for your project. One way to do this is to
explore the existing
-
-          <a href="http://www.apache.org/foundation/projects.html">Apache projects
-</a> to find similar projects. Spend some time reading their project web
-pages and mailing lists (follow links at each project website). By
-simply lurking on the project mailing lists (and also the
-
-          <a href="/guides/lists.html#general+at+incubator.apache.org">Incubator general
list
-</a> and other Incubating project lists) you may get ideas about who you
-would like to ask to help you with your project proposal.
-
-        </p>
-        <p>However, Champions must either be ASF
-
-          <a href="http://www.apache.org/foundation/members.html">members
-</a> or
-
-          <a href="http://www.apache.org/foundation/index.html">officers
-</a>(see the Champion section later in this document for more on Champion
-criteria and responsibilities). Once you have found an eligible
-person who is willing to act as Champion, you can use this person to
-help you determine if and how your proposal can complement the ASF.
-If you and your Champion are convinced that your candidate project
-would fit with the "Apache Way", your Champion can help you to get it
-established.
-
-        </p>
-        <p>The establishment of a candidate involves the preparation of a
-project description (consistent with the candidate description
-detailed below) endorsed by a
-
-          <strong>Champion</strong>.
-
-        </p>
-        <p>A
-
-          <strong>Candidate</strong> project description should be submitted
to the relevant mailing
-list(s) of a
-
-          <strong>Sponsor</strong> (see the
-
-          <a href="/guides/lists.html">Mailing Lists</a> guide). See the
-
-          <a href="http://jakarta.apache.org/site/newproject.html">Jakarta Guidelines
for New Projects
-</a> for a list of issues that should be addressed in your proposal; also
-see
-
-          <a href="http://wiki.apache.org/incubator/">Incubator Proposal Pages</a>
-          for other examples. Typically a
-          <strong>Candidate</strong> is submitted under a message tagged with
[PROPOSAL]. Such a message
-will normally trigger some discussions on the receiving mailing
-list(s). Your Champion will be involved in these discussions acting
-as your advocate.
-
-        </p>
-        <p>As a proposer you should consider the feedback and attempt to gauge a
-sense of consensus. Do not be put off by extended threads under your
-initial post that have little or nothing to do with your proposal -
-however, if you feel that your candidate project is not being
-addressed, you may want to specifically request a decision on the
-Candidate by the Sponsor by posting a request to the decision making
-list (usually dev@project-name.apache.org - see
-
-          <a href="/guides/lists.html">Mailing Lists</a> guide for more details).

-Sometimes a vote will be announced without
-you asking for it (perhaps you have done some homework and have a PMC
-member assisting you though the process), other times you may need to
-cut through discussions and push your request forward for a decision.
