Subject [Fwd: Call for Assistance: Infrastructure]

This came out to a separate list but I thought it might be of interest
to some on this list especially in light of the experience of the last
couple days.

Apache Committers,

As I am sure many of you are aware, the Apache Software Foundation
continues to grow and develop. When the ASF was started six years ago, we
had just one project: the Apache HTTP Server. There were two or three
dozen committers, and one small CVS repository.

Today, we have dozens of top-level projects, a hundred codebases, around a
thousand committers, hundreds of mailing lists, lots of wikis, a couple
bug trackers, a rack full of machines, two colocation facilities, and even
further growth ahead of us.

The ASF has enjoyed a lot of success with our projects and with our
visibility, impact, and influence across the open source community. Heck,
across the entire computing industry.

Unfortunately, this growth and success comes at a cost. The administrative
burden for all of this continues to increase. Our current team of
volunteers need assistance. 

There are many ways to participate and to help out. Please subscribe to
infrastructure@ and ask how you can help. You can contribute to the ASF in
many more ways than coding. Your assistance can help ALL of our projects.

If you have a little time, then please help our infrastructure team.
