 While many third parties create Apache licensed

-<p>This is implicit in the fact that the Project Management Committee (PMC) runs the
project, and the fact that PMC members are expected to contribute to the project as individuals,
wearing their “PMC hat”. The concept of hats means that when a PMC member votes
on project matters, they are casting their vote as an individual acting in the best interests
of that PMC, and not as an employee or representative of some third party. There are also
certain expectations of diversity within a PMC; the board may apply extra scrutiny to PMCs
with low diversity (i.e. PMCs that are dominated by people with a common employer). Similarly,
the ASF does not allow corporations to participate directly in project management, only individuals.</p>

 <p>Apache projects must be managed independently, and PMCs must ensure that they are
acting in the best interests of the project as a whole. Note that it is similarly important
that the PMC clearly show this independence within their project community. The perception
of existing and new participants within the community that the PMC is run independently and
without favoring any specific third parties over others is important, to allow new contributors
to feel comfortable both joining the community and contributing their work. A community that
obviously favors one specific vendor in some exclusive way will often discourage new contributors
from competing vendors, which is an issue for the long term health of the project.</p>
