Subject Re: SwellRT Applying to Mozilla Open Source Support
Date Tue, 29 Nov 2016 17:54:07 GMT

Many people are paid to work on Apache projects, but none of them are
paid *by Apache*. It has been a principle that goes back a long way that
keeps things even and avoids many conflicts.

You are welcome to seek funding for your project. You are welcome to
seek funding to work on Apache Wave. As far as Apache is concerned, you
will just be another person paid to work on an Apache codebase - Apache
cannot give any special affirmation of your effort above those of any
other contributor.

Does that make sense?
