+<p>While not all aspects of the Apache Way are practiced the same way by 
+all projects at the ASF, there are a number of rules that Apache 
+projects are required to follow – things like complying with PMC

policy</a>, <a href="">brand policy</a>,

+using <a href="">mailing lists</a>, etc., which
are <a href="">documented
in various places</a>. </p>
+<p>One of these invariant rules is that projects are managed and used
+independently of any commercial interests. The goal is to createan 
+environemnt in which all participants are equal and thus have an equal
+opportunity to contribute to and benefit from our software, regardless
+of motivation or financial objectives. This is discussed in more detail
+in our document <a href="/projectIndependence.html">Project Independence</a>.</p>
