What is Apache Petri?

The Apache Petri (as in “petri dish” –where cultures are grown and bloom) committee assists external project communities interested in becoming an Apache project to learn how The Apache Software Foundation (ASF) works, its views on community, and how to build a healthy community for the long -term.

Petri’s mission is to mentor existing external communities (“cultures”) about “The Apache Way” by focusing on community governance that includes discussions about ASF policies. The mentoring and education is conducted on a mailing list.

The primary goal is to reach a point where a recommendation to the ASF Board can be made to construct a new Apache Project Management Committee (PMC) for the external community.
