The Apache Software Foundation provides organizational, legal,
and ﬁnancial support for a broad range of open source software
projects. The Foundation provides an established framework for
intellectual property and ﬁnancial contributions that
simultaneously limits contributors potential legal exposure.
Through a collaborative and meritocratic development process,
Apache projects deliver enterprise-grade, freely available software
products that attract large communities of users. The pragmatic
Apache License makes it easy for all users, commercial and
individual, to deploy Apache products.
