Well, there is scratch your own itch and then there is the "Apache Way".

      *Philosophy*

While there is not an official list, these six principles have been
cited as the core beliefs of philosophy behind the foundation, which is
normally referred to as "The Apache Way":

    - collaborative software development
    - commercial-friendly standard license
    - consistently high quality software
    - respectful, honest, technical-based interaction
    - faithful implementation of standards
    -  security as a mandatory feature

All of the ASF projects share these principles.

Code coverage, reducing bug backlog and addressing functional testing
and security issues are part of our responsibility  as an ASF
project.    Where do we rate for each of the six principles  on a scale
of 1-10 for embedded and client?  Where should we be? How do we get there?
