positions on advocacy items (patents, licenses, whatever) Once Apache takes an extreme public position, it's very difficult to change as time goes on. Apache as an organization doesn't generally advocate for specific behavior with regard to software development, but does exhibit a well-organized and well-justified model for this behavior. With regard to policy statements, e.g. on software patents, patent lawsuits, licenses; where there is board consensus on important issues it is appropriate to take public advocacy positions. The board does not see any such issues at present. With regard to defense of Apache policies and practices, the board will actively defend Apache policies and practices, and the people who implement them.
