Subject Re: How to start a new workflow project on ASF
Date Wed, 04 Feb 2009 20:14:35 GMT
For sponsorship, you could also consider ODE, workflow is in our charter and
we have some development going on at the moment in that area (although not
XPDL).

When you'll be writing your proposals there are a few points that you should
address as they're likely to raise questions:

 * you'll need to relicense from LGPL to ASL 2.0, can you have a written
agreement from all the copyright holders (probably all past committers)?
 * in terms of development, there doesn't seem to be much activity in the
past 6 months [1], so what would your incubation goals (i.e. seek more
committers, cross-pollination, more users, ...)

Cheers,
Matthieu
