This question has raised many flamewars - you'll find many blogs out
there on "comparing" Github to ASF. Search for "ASF considered
harmful" and the replies from Jim Jagielski.

In short:
Apache is around community and the people (slogan: community over
code). Additionally there is a foundation which protects people before
legal problems.

Github is a source code hoster like Google Code. You can build a
community there too, but it is not the focus. Its more a great tool.

In the case of Zeta this project has failed to build up a community.
Therefore it does not really match to the ASF and it might happen that
people are more excited about Zeta when it goes to Github. Not every
project does find a good home here - sadly.
