This is the top-level (General) Apache Wiki. It is maintained by the entire Apache community. Each project Wiki listed below is managed by the respective project community.
Welcome to the Apache Top-Level Wiki
A Wiki is a website which is editable over the web by it's users. This allows information to be more rapidly updated than traditional websites. Many Apache projects make active use of wikis for community support and for extra project information, in addition to their main project websites. This General Wiki is a top-level overview of other wikis at the Apache Software Foundation, as well as overall Foundation-level information, at the bottom of this page.
Rather than host all projects' wiki content in one wiki, we utilise moinmoin's "Wiki farm" feature to have per-project Wikis in a single installation. You must log in separately to each distinct Wiki you wish to edit (but we are working to change that).
Note that all official Apache project wikis are only served from either http://wiki.apache.org or from http://cwiki.apache.org.
Remember, if it's not at apache.org, it's not officially from the ASF.
Currently, the following project wikis are hosted here (see also our https://cwiki.apache.org/ installation):
General Wiki Pages about the ASF
This General wiki is a place for putting snippets of documentation that apply to the ASF as a whole or to the corporate aspects of the Foundation. The goal is to migrate the useful information here - once it's stable - to the main Apache site (ie http://www.apache.org/, http://www.apache.org/foundation, and http://www.apache.org/dev/ ) periodically.

Committers on Apache projects are welcome to list their other (non-ASF) projects on ApacheCommittersExternalProjects. Committers should also consider adding themselves to the http://people.apache.org/ website as well.
