Apache is the world’s largest open source foundation, with over 200 million lines of code managed by an all-volunteer community of 730 members and 7,000 code contributors. In 2016, Apache started integrating GitHub’s repository and tooling, with its own services. In late 2018, Apache asked all projects to move away from its internal git service, to that provided by GitHub. As of February 2019, Apache’s migration to GitHub was complete.
This move enables Apache teams to host and review code, manage projects, and build software alongside 31M+ developers, 2M+ businesses and organizations, and across 100M+ repositories.
“We’re proud to have such a long standing member of the Open Source community migrate to GitHub,” said Nat Friedman, Chief Executive Officer of GitHub. “Whether we’re working with individual Open Source maintainers and contributors or some of the world’s largest Open Source foundations like Apache, GitHub’s mission is to be the home for all developers by supporting Open Source communities, addressing their unique needs, and helping Open Source projects thrive.”
