The Apache Software Foundation provides support for the Apache
community of open-source software projects. The Apache projects are
characterized by a collaborative, consensus based development process,
an open and pragmatic software license, and a desire to create high
quality software that leads the way in its field. We consider
ourselves not simply a group of projects sharing a server, but rather
a community of developers and users.
You are invited to participate in The Apache Software Foundation.
We welcome contributions in
many forms. Our membership
consists of those individuals who have demonstrated a commitment to
collaborative open-source software development through sustained
participation and contributions within the Foundation's projects.
