馬目 彩,

Some of your questions are very unclear. I'll offer you one answer, but
suggest you share your questions with a more proficient English language
student to ensure they are what you had meant to ask.  Perhaps someone
at the docs@ project can translate my answers, and even consider these
for our FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) list, which you should also
review for your questions (especially section 1, Questions 1, 2, 3);

The Apache HTTP Server Project is an effort to develop and maintain an open-source HTTP
server for modern operating systems including UNIX and Windows NT. The goal of this
project is to provide a secure, efficient and extensible server that provides HTTP
services in sync with the current HTTP standards.

Apache httpd has been the most popular web server on the Internet since April 1996, and
celebrated its 15th birthday as a project this February.

The Apache HTTP Server ("httpd") is a project of The Apache Software Foundation.

> 3. What they do?

Collaborators here contribute to the source code, and/or documentation.
Some also help out on peer-to-peer support lists, help the project's
web site or package releases, or even help operate our foundation.

Nearly all use the software and wish for it to be enhanced and improved.
Some are paid for their work in this space, others are hobbyists.  Most
paid collaborators have contributed some of their own personal time to
the project.

> 5. How they collaborate with others?

Through this mailing list, along with other "user" and "docs" focused
mailing lists, also some face-to-face hackathon/gatherings, and some
use IRC.  All binding decisions are concluded on this list.
