        Foundation, providing guidance and support to help each new
        product engender their own collaborative community, educating
        new developers in the philosophy and guidelines for
        collaborative development as defined by the members of the
        Foundation, and proposing to the board the promotion of such
        products to independent PMC status once their community has
