Community-led development "The Apache Way"
The ASF does not have offices or buildings. Its only physical existence is the technical infrastructure that enables it to operate, and the staff.
The ASF Infrastructure team, known as "Infra", supports services that help the ASF and its projects to function and flourish, including:
web serving environment (web sites and wikis)
mail management environment
issue / bug tracking
global content distribution network (CDN) for all projects' product releases
Infra is responsible for the management and day-to-day system administration of the hardware that runs these services. Infra also reviews requests to install new systems or software on the ASF machines.
Infra deploys in production a number of Apache software applications, including:
Public Host and Service Status - ASF Infra has already been automatically alerted if a service is marked as down.
