January 26th, 2008
In early December I was nominated and elected to become a member of the Apache Software Foundation (ASF). I’ve been contributing to SpamAssassin, an Apache project, since just after the release of 3.0.0 in October 2004 (and a committer since March of 2005). I’ve been using and working on SpamAssassin since Justin Mason’s first release back around 2001. I guess, so far, I’ve failed to do more harm than good and elected a member as punishment.
