+ - Apache Labs is Born

Submitted by

thehossman writes "From the newly created by laws: While healthy and diverse open development communities provide a very efficient solution for self-sustaining, long-lasting and well-adapting software development practices, the creation and bootstrap of such community is normally a long and emotionally expensive process. ... 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."

An adequate bootstrap is a contradiction in terms.
