We consider ourselves not simply a group of projects sharing a server, but rather a community of developers and users.

The Apache Software Foundation provides support for the Apache community of open-source software projects, which provide software products for the public good.

The Apache projects are defined by collaborative consensus based processes, an open, pragmatic software license and a desire to create high quality software that leads the way in its field.
