Subject ComDev mission
Date Fri, 27 Oct 2017 08:43:47 GMT
Months ago, we discussed a refocusing of the ComDev mission, which we've
made some progress on here:

I had an inspiration this morning, and wrote the following, which I would
like to propose as our new mission statement, to be included on the website
and in our board reports:

The Community Development project creates and provides tools, processes,
and advice, to help open source software projects improve their own
community health.

We are, of course, primarily focused on Apache Software Foundation
projects. However, because we believe that the Apache Way is, in fact, the
best way to manage a software project, we strive also to make these
artifacts releasable to the open source community as a whole.

I feel like this provides a clear path for our activities, as well as a
goal of  being a beacon for the entire open source world, with our
experience and philosophy.

In the spirit of lazy consensus, I'm going to make that paragraph edit on
our website unless there are objections. (This won't happen for several
days, since I'm traveling, so there's time for folks to speak up.)
