|This is the talk page for discussing improvements to the Apache Software Foundation template.
There has been quite a lot of edits on this template recently, sadly few edits has made the template better. It's been on the contrary if you ask me.
Please don't make changes to the template to make it look more confusing, keep it simple.
Also, what's so bad with a link to The apache license or Apache's homepage?- David Björklund (talk)
FWIW, all development in the ASF is organized under "Top Level Projects" -- where a TLP is any project that has a "Project Management Committee" (PMC) each TLP may have one or more sub-projects (with separate use groups, and committers) under the leadership of the TLP's PMC.
The list of TLPs is not adhoc, it's completely official, voted on by the board of directors, and well documented. the list of sub-projects within each TLP is also official, but managed by each PMC -- because of a shift in how project information is documented, each sub-project is responsible for adding itself to the project directory, and some may not be listed. in sort, this URL lists every TLP, but may not list every sub-project...
...i mention all of this as a preable to the following statement: the "Top level projects" list on this template is blatently wrong, and if there is going to be a "Notable sub-projects" list, there really shouldn't be any such thing as "Other projects" -- those are either TLPs or sub-projects and belong in one list or the other.
My suggestion: change this template to be more useful for understandingthe structure of apache TLPs and sub-projects...
