Subject [Incubator Wiki] Update of "ApacheProjectMaturityModel" by BertrandDelacretaz
Date Thu, 15 Jan 2015 11:43:41 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

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

The "ApacheProjectMaturityModel" page has been changed by BertrandDelacretaz:
https://wiki.apache.org/incubator/ApacheProjectMaturityModel?action=diff&rev1=15&rev2=16

  == Overview ==
  The goal of this maturity model is to describe how Apache projects operate, in a concise
and high-level way.
  
- It does not describe all the details of how our projects operate, but aims to capture the
invariants of Apache projects and point to additional information where needed.
+ It is meant to be usable outside of Apache as well, for projects that might want to adopt
some or all of these principles. Projects that envision moving to Apache at some point might
start working towards this to prepare for their move.
  
- The goal is to serve as a reference for incoming projects, for projects that are considering
moving to Apache and want to prepare for that and also for corporate projects that want to
adopt some of our operating principles.
+ It does not describe all the details of how our projects operate, but aims to capture the
invariants of Apache projects and point to additional information where needed. To keep the
main model as concise as possible we use footnotes for anything that's not part of the core
model.
  
  Contrary to other maturity models, we do not define staged partial compliance levels. A
mature Apache project complies with all the elements of this model, and other projects are
welcome to pick and choose the elements that suit their goals.
  
- To keep the main model as concise as possible we use footnotes for anything that's not part
of the core model.
- 
- Note that we do not use the word "must" below. The model describes the state of a mature
project, as opposed to a set of rules.
+ Note that we try to avoid using the word "must" below. The model describes the state of
a mature project, as opposed to a set of rules.
  
  == The Apache Project Maturity Model ==
  Each item in the model has a unique ID to allow them to be easily referenced elsewhere.
