> Fix test failure

Just four years ago, the ASF reached the 1M commit mark. Since then, Apache repositories changed greatly with the introduction of Git to the source code management system. The original Subversion (SVN) repository has been decentralized and augmented with 268 Git repositories, in addition to a robust GitHub presence with 564 different repositories.

In addition, the ASF reached another notable milestone this month with Apache email archives exceeding 11M messages. “We are distributing terabytes of artifacts per week. Just in Apache OpenOffice, we’ve distributed petabytes worth of artifacts, “said David Nalley, Vice President of ASF Infrastructure.

Since 1999, the all-volunteer ASF has been developing and shepherding over two hundred leading Open Source projects, including Apache HTTP Server —the world’s most popular Web server software— and dozens of industry-defining technologies and tools such as Apache Accumulo, Apache Cassandra, Apache CloudStack, Apache CouchDB, Apache Flex, Apache Hadoop, Apache Lucene/Solr, Apache Open Climate Workbench, Apache ServiceMix, Apache SpamAssassin, Apache Tomcat, and many others. In addition to Apache Top-level Projects (and sub-projects), there are currently 33 “podlings” undergoing development in the Apache Incubator, and 38 technical initiatives in the Apache Labs. The ASF’s more than 450 individual Members and 3,500 Committers successfully collaborate to develop freely available enterprise-grade software, benefiting millions of users worldwide.
