Subject svn commit: r386854 - /forrest/trunk/site-author/content/xdocs/guidelines.xml
Date Sat, 18 Mar 2006 15:14:28 GMT
Author: crossley
Date: Sat Mar 18 07:14:25 2006
New Revision: 386854

URL: http://svn.apache.org/viewcvs?rev=386854&view=rev
Log:
Expanded our definition of the Apache Way. Please amend if you think that
you can do better.
Added a new paragraph to explain why we have these "project guidelines".
The content of this paragraph is from the ASF Board resolution that
created our PMC, so not much scope for changing its words.

     <title>The Apache Way</title>
     <p>
       Forrest is typical of Apache projects, in that it operates under a set of
-      principles known collectively as the "Apache Way". This facilitates
-      open collaborative development, with respect for others.
-      For more information about how Apache projects operate, please refer to
+      principles known collectively as the "Apache Way". There is no clear definition 
+      (perhaps that is part of it) and it is ever-evolving. Each ASF project is different
+      in its own way - there is healthy diversity rather than uniformity across all projects.
+      The main principles are to facilitate open collaborative development, with respect
for
+      others; to ensure that there is a healthy community (even to give community issues
+      higher priority than code issues); to ensure that each contributor is recognised and
+      feels a productive part of the community; to encourage diversity; to make the project
a nice place to be.
