Subject Apache News Roundup from the ApacheCon Show Floor
Date Sat, 06 Nov 2010 21:46:22 GMT
The following newsworthy events took place during the course of ApacheCon North America 1-5

1) Foundation Updates

- Membership count: 330 (31 new Members; 52 emeritus)

- Committer count: +2,500 (approximately 200 additional Committers over the past year)

The ASF is governed by the community it most directly serves -- the people collaborating within
its projects. Apache Committers are developers who contribute (individuals who "commit" or
"write" code, patches, or documentation) directly to the Apache code repository. Apache Members
are Committers who have demonstrated merit in the Foundation’s growth, evolution, and progress,
and have been nominated for and elected to be awarded ASF Membership by existing Members.
ASF Members have the right to vote on community-related decisions; and and the ability propose
an active user for Committership. 

- Sponsors: the ASF welcomed new Sponsors AMD and IBM at the Gold level, and Lucid Imagination
at the Bronze level.

- Java Community Process: the ASF's seat on the JCP Executive Committee was ratified on 2
November 2010.

2) Apache Projects

- Apache Top-level Projects: 82 total; new Apache Projects added are Avro, Axis, Cassandra,
Click, HBase, Hive, Karaf, Mahout, Nutch, Pivot, Shindig, Subversion, Tika, Traffic Server,

- Apache Labs: 32 initiatives being sandboxed. Apache Labs projects are created to quickly
