Date Wed, 01 Apr 2009 05:15:44 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Incubator Wiki" for change notification.

The following page has been changed by FelixMeschberger:

New page:
= NullProposal =

== Abstract ==

Apache Null will implement a cloud-aware semantically enabled web 3.0 null
container with null use.

== Proposal ==

Apache Null will be written in the Null programming language, which is
known for its simple syntax and small vocabulary. For more information
on the Null programming language refer to
A robust, community-developed implementation of the Apache Null APIs
will encourage compatibility between service providers, ensure an
excellent implementation is available to everyone, and enable faster and
easier application development for users.
The Apache Software Foundation has proven it is the best place for this
type of open development.

== Current Status ==

This is a new project.

== Meritocracy == 

The initial developers are very familiar with meritocratic open source
development at Apache. Apache was chosen specifically because the
initial developers want to encourage this style of development for the

== Community ==

Null seeks to develop developer and user communities during incubation.

== Core Developers ==

The initial set of committers includes folks from a single company, all
of which ASF Members.

During incubation the developers base will be broadened.

== Alignment ==

The developers of Null want to work with the Apache Software Foundation
specifically because Apache has proven to provide a strong foundation
and set of practices for developing standards-based infrastructure and
server components.

== Known Risks ==

=== Orphaned products ===

Null is new development.

=== Inexperience with Open Source ===

The initial developers include long-time open source developers,
including Apache Members.

=== Homogenous Developers ===

The initial set of developers is not diverse. Building a more diverse
developer community is a high priority for this project.

=== Reliance on Salaried Developers ===
The initial group of developers are all employed by potential consumers
of the project. Remedying this is a large part of why we want to bring
the project to Apache.

== Relationships with Other Apache Products ==

None in particular.

== A Excessive Fascination with the Apache Brand ==

We believe in the processes, systems, and framework Apache has put in
place. The brand is nice, but is not why we wish to come to Apache.

== Documentation ==


== Initial Source ==


== External Dependencies ==


== Required Resources ==

=== Developer and user mailing lists ===

=== A subversion repository ===

=== A JIRA issue tracker ===

== Initial Committers ==
