Not as long as the license is one of our accepted ones.    There CAN be a 
problem with other apache projects.    If a non-apache person asks for an 
apache thing to be added, that's actually OK.  (wink, wink... ;-)   
However, since we're all apache people, we kind of have to follow the 
apache rules and say only the PMC's of that project have the authority to 
do that.     That said, it's VERY easy for the apache projects to do it 
if their PMC's want to.   Apache is a sync partner.   All the other 
project would have to do is get their artifacts uploaded 
into /www/people.apache.org/repo/m2-ibiblio-rsync-repository and it will 
automatically sync to central within 24 hours.     No JIRA things need to 
be filed, no waiting for Carlos, etc...

It's a little bit more work for us.   However, it removes the work for 
everyone else that may want to use it as well as anyone that wants to 
also integrate Qpid into their projects.   Ideally, we would then give 
the pom.xml back to the project and in the future, they could handle it
