west yorkshire archive service

West Yorkshire Joint Services (WYJS) provides certain public services to the five districts of West Yorkshire, England (Bradford, Calderdale, Kirklees, Leeds and Wakefield). It is jointly funded by the five district councils, pro rata to their population, and is run by a committee of equal numbers of councillors from the five councils. It "brings together a number of key services which the five district councils of West Yorkshire recognise can be more effectively delivered on a county-wide basis". and its declared aim is "protecting consumers, business and the heritage of West Yorkshire". When West Yorkshire Metropolitan County Council was abolished in 1988, a "Joint Committee Arrangement" was established, to continue to provide archaeology, archives and trading standards services for the five successor district councils. In 1997 the Joint Services were created, to avoid duplication of resources across these services; it is based near Morley, Leeds. (Excerpt from Wikipedia article: West Yorkshire Archive Service)

apache software foundation

The Apache Software Foundation (ASF) is a non-profit corporation (classified as 501(c)(3) in the United States) to support Apache software projects, including the Apache HTTP Server. The ASF was formed from the Apache Group and incorporated in Delaware, U.S., in June 1999. The Apache Software Foundation is a decentralized community of developers. The software they produce is distributed under the terms of the Apache License and is therefore free and open source software (FOSS). The Apache projects are characterized by a collaborative, consensus-based development process and an open and pragmatic software license. Each project is managed by a self-selected team of technical experts who are active contributors to the project. The ASF is a meritocracy, implying that membership to the foundation is granted only to volunteers who have actively contributed to Apache projects. The ASF is considered a second generation open-source organization. Among the ASF's objectives are to provide legal protection to volunteers working on Apache projects, and to prevent the Apache brand name from being used by other organizations without permission. The ASF also holds several ApacheCon conferences each year, highlighting Apache projects, related technology, and encouraging Apache developers to gather together.
