-communities</a> that provide free software for the public benefit.</p>
+We are, of course, primarily focused on Apache Software Foundation
+projects. However, because we believe that the Apache Way is, in fact, the
+best way to manage a software project, we strive also to make these
+artifacts releasable to the open source community as a whole. </p>
 <p>We do not focus on
 specific projects here, but rather on the common processes and policies
 called The Apache Way found in most Apache projects. Our goal is to help you
 <em>understand how the ASF works</em> and give you the confidence to participate
