Accelerating Innovation with Apache Extras

Google and the Apache Software Foundation just launched Apache Extras.

Apache Extras is a home for communities and open source projects related to Apache technologies, which cannot be hosted by the Apache Software Foundation because they are unable or unwilling to use the Apache v2 license or the Apache collaborative  consensus based processes (a.k.a. The Apache Way).

This new channel will help build collaborative communities around Apache Open Source related technologies. Apache Extras provides the infrastructure services typically required by open source projects, such as code repositories, bug tracking, and project web sites/wiki. It is hosted by Google Code Project Hosting, so it will be very familiar to developers already using Google Code Project Hosting.

The announce is here, more on the Google code blog, my friend Luciano's blog, the Apache Software Foundation blog, the Apache Extras management home, the FAQ, guidelines and home page.
