What is the Apache Software Foundation (ASF) Software Assurance Program?
The Apache Software Foundation (ASF) Software Assurance Program provides a way for businesses to fund the continued development of open source projects, supporting the communities that make up the software foundation.
The ASF offers two different types of programs: the Apache License, Version 2.0 (ALv2), and the Apache License, Version 3.0 (ALv3). The ALv2 is similar to a donation model where users can choose to support open source software in whatever amount they feel comfortable with. There is no lock-in commitment or term requirements on how long an individual or business can participate. This program is also redistributable at any time with no additional licensing costs or restrictions. The ALv3 requires a one-time non-renewable payment from a company and has exclusive rights over some code names such as "Apache", "Apache HTTP Server", and "Apache Hadoop", among others.
The ASF’s stated goals are:
"to promote participation in and evolution of Open Source software; to establish standards for Open Source software; to provide public recognition for pioneering contributors; to award prizes to individuals who advance Open Source technology; to recognize achievement through awards, scholarships, and other means; and to provide resources for education in computers."
