PC Week: Apache incorporates, creates new structure

“Will it be Apache.com?”

“That appears to be the case as the Apache Group (APCH), the

Software Foundation. The ASF did not, however, affix “Inc.” to the

the open-source-based Apache projects. Membership in the company is
by invitation, which will be extended based on technical
contributions to ASF projects, Apache officials said.”
