Before writing this: I should clarify this fact. I was elected as committer by “THREE TIMES” at *@*.apache.org mailing lists before becoming a first individual and outside USA sponsor ( http://an.to/asf ). Anyone can not buy @apache.org account : declaration:

As an ex-sponsor of the apache software foundation I would like to write various thing here.
Before that, to be honest, the current board members are so much OBSOLETE from my point of views. Compile the tasks and go emertus I recommend as an ex-sponsor (individual). December Last Year or around, I sent messages to all the members in @apache.org (committers + members) as a sponsor. In general, “I do not know button” would never happen (See the thanks.html PAGE, guys) – because just “archive” button exist – however some (generally) nuts had pushed “I do not know” button and my linkedin account suspended for a few days.

(My heart was just saying in cruel: at that time) See the thanks.html page, MEMBERS!

Plus, my sponshorship was not “tax-deductive”. Understand that?

Gradually found out there lays the critical difference between the USA/European Foundations/NPOs and Japanese ones.

One of the NPOs which I am getting involved (donating) in — named “Tsubasa” (for the gifted in Japan / NPO — “tsubasa = wings”) : Tsubasa’s chair said to me “it is not a good joke because there are persons who donated 2000USD or more to us”. (It was just a mistake of him: I was just joking as I knew the policitians and chair of the re-form of japanese gov. — 12 years, so just joking) This attitude is Japanese NPOs’ style. Normal attitudes towards the donators. All the components (Apache members) should “thank” to those donated or sponsored as a matter of course — this IS the rule of NPOs at least in Japan.

….. And “I don’t know button”? …. and spam? … and abrupt suspension?

Cultural difference or the arrogance of the bureaucratic Foundation, which operates OPEN sources — anyways. My heart is crying …. Today is my birthday.
