Apache Null will implement a cloud-aware semantically enabled web 3.0 null container with null use.
Apache Null will be written in the Null programming language, which is known for its simple syntax and small vocabulary. For more information on the Null programming language refer to http://tinyurl.com/null-language. A robust, community-developed implementation of the Apache Null APIs will encourage compatibility between service providers, ensure an excellent implementation is available to everyone, and enable faster and easier application development for users. The Apache Software Foundation has proven it is the best place for this type of open development.
This is a new project.
The initial developers are very familiar with meritocratic open source development at Apache. Apache was chosen specifically because the initial developers want to encourage this style of development for the project.
Null seeks to develop developer and user communities during incubation.
The initial set of committers includes folks from a single company, all of which ASF Members.
During incubation the developers base will be broadened.
The developers of Null want to work with the Apache Software Foundation specifically because Apache has proven to provide a strong foundation and set of practices for developing standards-based infrastructure and server components.
Null is new development.
Inexperience with Open Source
The initial developers include long-time open source developers, including Apache Members.
The initial set of developers is not diverse. Building a more diverse developer community is a high priority for this project.
Reliance on Salaried Developers
The initial group of developers are all employed by potential consumers of the project. Remedying this is a large part of why we want to bring the project to Apache.
Relationships with Other Apache Products
None in particular.
A Excessive Fascination with the Apache Brand
We believe in the processes, systems, and framework Apache has put in place. The brand is nice, but is not why we wish to come to Apache.
