Apache Community Development is here to welcome and guide you.

Get Code

All project code at Apache is publicly available and in Subversion or Git repositories.

How To Contact Anyone

Everything at Apache happens on our mailing lists. Find the right list to use. Technical questions go to a project's dev@ list. Or, ask cross-project questions. Read the public list archives.

Legal Issues

The ASF uses the permissive Apache License, version 2.0. Legal questions go to the Legal Affairs Committee.

Press, Analysts, Journalists

Corporate Governance

The ASF is a 501C3 non-profit public charity, that relies on individual donors and sponsors for funding and budgets. Members elect a Board of Directors that appoints Officers. Read our governance overview and org chart.

Infrastructure Team & Tools

The crack Apache Infrastructure team runs everything, and protects our servers from rogue gnomes.
