1. Forget TLP. We don't want technology umbrellas, and
working actively to get rid of those we have. So, your aim would be a TLP instead, which is fine ambition.

2. A PHP project at Apache is not a problem per se, IMHO. But, your
main challenge will be (just like log4php) to attract enough momentum
to get the community going. I doubt that there are many existing
Apache committers that are in deep with PHP, so you won't have this
'automatic attention of 1000 developers' like a Java project would.

Maybe that sounds discouraging, but it is my personal take on the
subject. Many good sites are LAMP driven, and personally I would like
to see more PHP stuff coming to Apache, but *I* can't write a single
line of code, so no help from here...

What does the rest of the Incubator think?
