Celebrating 20 years of community-led development "The Apache Way"
apache.org/dev/ pages provide a directory of technical details pertinent to all Apache projects.
This directory is focused on developers,
committers, release managers and PMC members contributing to any Apache project.
If you can't find information here, then please ask on your project's mailing list, or contact the Community Development project's mailing list for more general questions. There are many experienced ASF people there to help. We also have a sitemap summarizing all the pointers available.
Here you can find information about tools and processes used by Apache projects and the ASF to manage our source code, our mailing lists, our websites, and also How-To guides for committers and Project Management Committees (PMCs).

How to manage your project website
Each project uses their own issue tracker to track bugs, requests, and other action items - typically JIRA or BugZilla. Every Apache project decides how to track issues, so see each project website to find how they track issues.
Please read the Public Forum Archive Policy before posting on any Apache mailing list!
Subscription instructions and netiquette for all Apache mailing lists.
All Apache projects have their own set of project-specific mailing lists
There are some other non-project mailing lists (e.g. legal-discuss@ and community@ and various announcement lists).
All Apache mailing lists are archived:
Apache provides a paste bin service for committers to use at https://paste.apache.org.
Anyone can view the pastes (except those marked 'committers only'), but only committers are allowed to paste new data on the site.
Infrastructure hosts the s.apache.org URL shortening service for our committers. When writing PMC reports, please use this service and not other URL shorteners.
