Hi Dave, and welcome :-)

Yeah, the documentation is fairly comprehensive  - the big issue is that the first release
will be looked at fairly carefully, but the folks at incubator-list are quite helpful (though
sometimes a bit terse) in their comments. The big things are the IP clearances.

As such, we really need just someone to coordinate and push the release through. It doesn't
basically even need to compile, just get a release out of the door so that we can become a
top-level-project (TLP).

before, but I would be ready to try ;) Can't be that hard, since Apache's documentation seems
to be quite good.
