Apache Labs

26 11 2006

Apache Labs are the place where ASF committers can work on innovative, blue-sky and off-the-wall ideas, without having to worry about fitting in an existing project bylaw or building a community around it, but unlike other external venues that can offer similar hosting services, as a place where fellow committers can offer suggestions and help.

I think this is a great idea and an interesting innovation in the way Apache tries to manage and grow Open Source communities. I’m sure we’ll see many labs flourish soon.

There’s been a mail to all Apache committers by Stefano Mazzocchi on behalf of the Labs PMC.
