For completeness, also consider the following options:

* Direct to TLP. The board has approved moving a new project directly to 
top level project status without going through the incubator. It 
requires a proposed PMC most of whose members are also ASF members.

* Spawn a subproject within AOO.

I have followed some of the GitHub discussions on various mailing lists. 
I think it would be cleaner to keep AOO4J inside Apache and under SVN
