Apache Labs is a place for innovation where committers of the foundation can experiment with new ideas. The aim is to provide the necessary resource to promote and maintain the innovative power within the Apache community without the burden of community building.
Research efforts are intrinsically associated with a higher mortality rate and don't satisfy the established incubation and development practices. Labs provides a place for the Apache committer community to collaborate on such efforts - without discrimination of purpose, medium or implementation technology.
Individual Labs are regularly evaluated to determine whether the lab should be terminated, continue to receive support and oversight, or proposed to the incubator as a seed for a new project.
