To add a bit to what Bertrand says, it is likely that there is a bit of a
gulf between what Apache expects new communities to be and do and what you
might come up with from first principles or raw expectations.

That said, your suggested projects could be really valuable and they might
very well fit well in the Apache community of communities. Your call for
potential champions is exactly the right first step. A good champion can
help you figure out what Apache is and what it is that we do (and don't do).

Bertrand's suggestion that you say a bit more about what you are doing and
want to do is spot on. That is how you get people excited.
