ways

The 6 main concepts of the Apache Way

Charity

Apache’s mission is providing software for the public good.

Community

Many of us are more effective than all of us.

Consensus

Getting good enough consensus is often better than voting.

Merit

Those that have proven they can do, get to do more.

Open

Technical decisions are discussed, decided, and archived publicly.

Pragmatic

Apache projects use the broadly permissive Apache license.
