Well I really found the complete article:

http://www.infoworld.com/d/open-source-software/has-apache-lost-its-way-225267?page=0,0

interesting and contradictory at the same time. I think the gist of it can
essentially be found in the very last section -- *ASF and the future of
open source. *Big projects, like OpenOffice, need a BIG open source
provider, like Apache.*

*
So odd that that the "laissez-faire" aspect of the ASF in mentioned in the
same breath as it's "stricture". Go figure.*
