+      </question>
+      <answer>Participation on the project is via the mailing
+        list and the source code repository. You join by subscribing
+        to the mailing list and participating in discussions. You
+        can help by contributing your ideas, enthusiasm, code,
+        documentation, and tests. The fundamental tenet of the Apache
+        Software Foundation is that great communities build great
+        code. The emphasis is on community; the code comes from that.
+        If you want to help, just join the mailing list, see what
+        needs to be done, and do it. Welcome!
