Community-led development "The Apache Way"
These pages provide a directory of technical details pertinent to all Apache projects, for developers, committers, release managers and PMC members contributing to any Apache project.
If you can't find information here, 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 who can help.
Find information about tools and processes the ASF and its projects use to manage source code, mailing lists, and websites. You can also find how-to guides for committers and Project Management Committees (PMCs).

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 including URLs in PMC reports, please use this service and not other URL shorteners.
