  THIS IS A DRAFT DOCUMENT FOR DISCUSSION PURPOSES ONLY. 
  
- This is a list of various ASF mottos, classic and contrived, designed to express the essential
principles and practices of ASF Culture. This is an initial draft. Ideally, each motto would
include a paragraph or three of explanation. 
+ We usually refer to our software methodology as the "Apache Way", which we describe in terms
of six hallmarks
  
+  * 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
-  * Let them that do the work make the decisions.
-  * Critique our code, not our coders.
-  * Put community before code.
-  * Let Darwin decide.
-  * Give karma where karma is due.
-  * Sometimes it's easier to ask for forgiveness than permission.
-  * If it didn't happen on a mailing list, it didn't happen.
-  * Thanks for volunteering.
-  * To become a committer, act like a committer.
-  * Don't feed the trolls.

+ Taken together, these six hallmarks work together to serve the ASF prime directive
+ 
+  * foster a collaborative approach to software development 
+ 
+ Underlying the six hallmarks and our prime directive are a set of five fundamental values
that embody the ASF Culture.
+ 
+  * collaboration
+  * self-determination 
+  * transparency 
+  * sustained interest
+  * netiquette (or common courtesy)
+ 
+ We usually express these values in the form of mottos or pity sayings.

-  * Encourage smart questions. 
-  * Security is a mandatory feature.
-  * Chunk commits but avoid churn.
+ Part of the ASF Culture is to speak to each other in pithy mottos. We use these mottos in
much the same way that architects use design patterns.
