  • 16. The State of the FeatherAn Overview and Year In Review ofThe Apache Software Foundation -- Jim Jagielski, Chairman ASF 17
  • 17. In the beginning...• There was The Apache Group• But we needed a more formal and legal entity• Thus was born: The Apache Software Foundation (April/June 1999)• A non-profit, 501(c)3 Corporation• Governed by members - member based entity 18
  • 18. The Overview• Not a replacement for “Behind the Scenes...”• To appreciate where we are -• Need to understand how we got here 19
  • 19. “Hierarchies” Development Administrative PMC Members Committers Board Contributors OfficersPatchers/Buggers Members Users 20
  • 20. At the start• There were only 21 members• And 2 “projects”: httpd and Concom• All servers and services were donated 21
  • 21. Today...• We have 258 members...• and 49 emeritus member• 70 TLPs• ~30 Incubator podlings• Tons of committers (literally) – (Over 2000 people) 22

  • 23. Handling growth• ASF dedicated to providing the infrastructure resources needed• Volunteers supplemented by contracted out SysAdmin• Paperwork handling supplemented by contracted out SecAssist 24
  • 24. Handling growth• Infrastructure Chair• Separate Exec. Vice President• Search for ExecAssist to help Board and President• Accounting services as needed• Using pro-bono legal services 25
  • 25. Staying true• Policy still firmly in the hands of the ASF• Use outsourced help where needed – Help volunteers, not replace them – Only for administrative efforts• Infrastructure itself is a service provided by the ASF• Board/Infra/etc exists so projects and people don’t need to worry about it 26
