Apache Developers' & Contributors' Overview

These apache.org/dev/ pages provide a directory of technical details pertinent to all Apache projects. This directory is focused on developers, committers, release managers and PMC members contributing to any Apache project.

If you can't find information here, then please ask on your project's mailing list, or contact the Community Development project's mailing list for more general questions. There are many experienced ASF people there to help. We also have a sitemap summarizing all the pointers available.

Here you can find information about tools and processes used by Apache projects and the ASF to manage our source code, our mailing lists, our websites, and also How-To guides for committers and Project Management Committees (PMCs).

Committers and Contributors

Project Management Committees (PMC)

All requests for Infrastructure assistance need to be sure that the relevant project PMC is involved. Remember that PMCs can handle many Infrastructure items for themselves.

Software Product Releases

Issue and Bug Tracking

Each project uses their own issue tracker to track bugs, requests, and other action items - typically JIRA or BugZilla. Every Apache project decides how to track issues, so see each project website to find how they track issues.

Mailing Lists

Pasting data to others

Apache provides a paste bin service for committers to use at https://paste.apache.org.

Anyone can view the pastes (except those marked 'committers only'), but only committers are allowed to paste new data on the site.

Apache URL Shortener Service

Infrastructure hosts the s.apache.org URL shortening service for our committers. When writing PMC reports, please use this service and not other URL shorteners.
