+<ul>
+  <li style="list-style-type: decimal">
+  <b>What is Apache Extras?</b>
+  <br/><br/>
+<a href="http://www.apache-extras.org/">Apache Extras</a> is a community of open
source projects related to Apache Software Foundation projects or based on their technology.
It provides the infrastructure services typically required by open source projects, such as
code repositories, bug tracking, project web sites/wiki. Apache Extras is hosted by Google
Code Project Hosting, so it will be very familiar to developers already using Google Code
Project Hosting.
+   <br/><br/> 
+  </li>
+  <li style="list-style-type: decimal">
+  <b>I have a technical questions about Apache Extras. How do I get support?</b>
+  <br/><br/> 
+Please contact the normal Google Code Project Hosting support channels. Help is available
at <a href="http://code.google.com/p/support/">code.google.com/p/support/</a>
+<br/><br/> 
+   </li>
+   <li style="list-style-type: decimal">
+   <b>What are the rules of hosting a project on Apache Extras?</b>
+   <br/><br/>
+All projects hosted on Apache Extras agreed to the standard Google Code Project Hosting terms
of use <a href="http://code.google.com/projecthosting/terms.html">code.google.com/projecthosting/terms.html</a>
and the <a href="guidelines.html">Apache Extras User Guidelines</a>.
+   <br/><br/>
+   </li>
+   <li style="list-style-type: decimal">
+  <b>Are projects on Apache Extras official Apache Software Foundation projects?</b>
+  <br/><br/>
+
+No, Apache Extras projects are not official Apache Software Foundation projects. Apache Extras
projects are not hosted by the Apache Software Foundation and do not have to follow the Apache
Software Foundation development and intellectual property policies.
+<br/><br/>
+There are a number of things Apache Extras projects can not do since they are not official
Apache Software Foundation projects, including 1) include the word Apache in their name, 2)
use the org.apache namespace for their bundles or package names.
+<br/><br/>
+   </li>
+   <li style="list-style-type: decimal">
+  <b>When should I consider using Apache Extras vs starting a project in the Apache
Incubator?</b>
+   <br/><br/>   
+Apache Extras projects are not official Apache Software Foundation projects. Apache Extras
is not a replacement for the Apache Incubator, which is the official way for a project to
join the Apache Software Foundation. 
+<br/><br/>
+Apache Extras has been established for projects that don't want to, or are unable to be a
formal part of the Apache Software Foundation but still wish to demonstrate their affinity
to one ore more official Apache project.
+<br/><br/>
+We recommend starting a project here if one or more of the following is true:
+<br/><br/>
+      <ul>
+      <li>the project is experimental and the committers are not sure of the future
direction.</li>
+      <li>the project has a license or depends on a license that is not compatible
with the Apache License 2.0</li>
+      <li>the project is targeted at a small niche and might not benefit from the wider
exposure of being an Apache Software project.</li>
+      </ul>
+<br/><br/>
+</li>
+<li style="list-style-type: decimal">
+  <b>Is it possible for an Apache Extras project to become an official Apache Software
Foundation project?</b>
+<br/><br/>
+Yes, but if you expect your project to eventually become an Apache project, please evaluate
the option to propose it as a new Apache Incubator project. In any case, the following suggestions
will facilitate a future migration to Apache Incubator : a) choose the Apache License 2.0
as your initial license. b) do not include or link to any code that is not compatible with
Apache License 2.0, see <a href="http://www.apache.org/legal/resolved.html">ASF Legal
Previously Asked Questions</a> for more details on Apache License 2.0 compatibility.
c) keep track of all contributions and ensure they are contributed under an Apache License
2.0 compatible license.
+<br/><br/>
+</li>
+<li style="list-style-type: decimal">
+  <b>I have an existing project on Google Code, can I migrate it to Apache Extras?</b>
+<br/><br/>
+If you have an existing project on Google Code that you would like to migrate to Apache Extras,
file an issue here. Once an issue is filed, you will be contacted within the next 48 hours
with instructions for how to migrate your project.
+<br/><br/>
+</li>
+<li style="list-style-type: decimal">
+  <b>Why can't I use Git?</b>
+<br/><br/>
+Google Code Project Hosting only provide support for Subversion and Mercurial. Apache Extras
is hosted at Google Code Project Hosting so we use their code managements systems.

+<p/>
+
+Welcome to Apache Extras, a place to build open source projects related to Apache Software
Foundation projects. Apache Extras is a collaboration between the Apache Software Foundation
and Google Code. We require all projects hosted on Apache Extras to respect and follow these
guidelines.
+
+<ul>
+<li style="list-style-type: decimal">
+  Apache Extras is part of Google Code. Users of Apache Extras must agree to the current
Google Code Terms of Use.
+  <br/><br/>
+</li>
+<li style="list-style-type: decimal">
+  The Apache Software Foundation supports Apache Extras by promoting the service to the Apache
community. The Apache Extras name is used with permission of The Apache Software Foundation.
+  <br/><br/>
+</li>
+<li style="list-style-type: decimal">
+  Projects hosted on Apache Extras are not considered official Apache Software Foundation
projects and they are also not associated, allied, or otherwise organizationally related to
The Apache Software Foundation. Therefore, we require project owners to respect the <a
href="http://www.apache.org/foundation/marks/">Apache Software Foundation trademark policy</a>,
including 1) not using Apache or an existing Apache project name in your Apache Extras project
name, and 2) not using org.apache as the prefix for your bundle or package name. In general,
projects hosted on Apache Extras must not portray themselves as official Apache Software Foundation
projects.
+  <br/><br/>
+</li>
+<li style="list-style-type: decimal">
+  Projects hosted on Apache Extras are expected to be related to an Apache Project or built
using Apache Project technology. Although Apache Extras does not impose a specific open source
license, we encourage the usage of Apache License 2.0.
+  <br/><br/>
+</li>
+<li style="list-style-type: decimal">
+  If you expect your project to eventually become a Apache project, please evaluate the option
to propose your project as a new Apache Incubator project. In any case, the following suggestions
will facilitate a future migration to Apache Incubator : a) choose the Apache License 2.0
as your initial license. b) do not include or link to any code that is not compatible with

+  Each Apache Extras project is encouraged to publish their releases and complete the project
tagging information available on Apache Extras.
+  <br/><br/>
+</li>
+<li style="list-style-type: decimal">
+The Apache Software Foundation reserves the right to disable and/or remove any project not
in compliance with these guidelines without warning. However, wherever possible, we will work
with project owners to resolve any issues before taking such drastic action.
