Apache is not a library collection foundation, its all around community here

All people here are pretty busy and have usually no time left.

Bringing a lib through the incubator means to build up a community.
Without community the library will not become a project in the future
and go to attic. We have already some pretty cool code in the attic.

At the moment I think you should put your source to github/googlecode
and make some noise on it.
