Governmental Affairs

19 Jan 2022

 WHEREAS, the Apache Software Foundation has been in contact with
 numerous government agencies with regard to open source security and
 security incident handling, including outreach from the US Federal
 Government in the form of law enforcement, the US Senate, the
 Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, the Executive Office
 of the President/National Security Council; and,

 WHEREAS the Apache Software Foundation anticipates that significant
 additional effort and resources are needed to handle the educational,
 political, and legal response to these matters; and,

 WHEREAS the Apache Software Foundation wishes to reduce (as much as
 possible) the impact this might have on individual project volunteers.

 THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that the President is charged with
 preparing for additional policy interactions in the future, outside
 the scope of our development communities, to anticipate the needs of
 State, Federal, and International governing agencies for better
 understanding of the ASF's open source practices, policies, and
 procedures; and,

 RESOLVED, that an additional budget category be created for
 "Governmental Affairs" to be used for expenses related to travel,
 preparation, and participation in such activities, as will be called
 upon from time to time, and for improving our public-facing
 educational resources accordingly; and,

 RESOLVED, that an initial budget of $100,000 be allocated for
 Governmental Affairs.

 Special Order 7F, Governmental Affairs, was approved by
 Unanimous Vote of the directors present.
