Welcome to the ASF

So there are a lot of things from last week's ApacheCon that I'm sorry I missed, but ironically, the thing I really wish I was there for actually happened while I was sitting in the airport waiting to fly back to San Jose.

You see, at the ASF Members meeting I (along with a bunch of other people, whose names will become public once they've all been notified) was voted in as a member of the Apache Software Foundation.

This is a really big deal for me. I've been hanging around the ASF for years, helping out where I can, because I think the ASF does good work and that it plays a hugely important role in the software world, providing a place people can develop high quality tools that can be used by both open source and proprietary projects everywhere.

Anyway, I just wanted to say thanks to everyone who voted me in, and that I'm looking forward to becoming more involved in the day to day operation of the ASF.


  1. Congratulations! :)

  2. Mega-congrats! That's awesome.

  3. Woah Garret. Your name is a reserved word.
    You'll have to lead the next sermon in the Church of the Blessed Kernel, I mean the VCC.
