The Apache Software Foundation is one of the greatest examples of mass collaboration in software thanks to the Apache Way and a mantra of “Community over Code”.  The success of the organization given the humble beginnings of the original eight and “a patchy” server is enviable. Today with over 200 projects, thousands of developers and millions of users the make up fo the community has changed. Companies want to share their resources and as much as Apache is about the participation of individuals to develop software their employees and interests are becoming interwoven into the fiber of the community. This will be a short diatribe on how improved understanding between companies interests and the good of Apache can be better aligned to drive another 15 years of success without sacrificing the ideals that have gotten us this far.
