Hi all, Andrey,
as Christian said, the ASF works in order to put community over the
code, so or ou create a community around your codebase or use your
codebase to contribute in existing communities; I'd see two main
options like:

 * publishing existing codebase to Apache Extras[1] (read the FAQ[2]); or
 * providing patches to Apache Commons (UIO could be contributed to
commons-io and imagero to commons-sanselan).

If you choose the option #2, I think you have to submit the SoftwareGrant[3].

Just my 2 cents,
Simo
