These pages attempt to list all resources and information related to ASF development process. It contains information aimed at developers, committers, release managers and pmc members. If you cannot find your answers here, then please ask on your project mailing lists. There are many experienced ASF people there to help. The content is categorized below. Alternatively, this sitemap summarizing all the information in /dev/ is available. Some further content starts its life on the General Wiki, and may move to these pages as it matures.

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).
