Our mission

To be the catalyst in communities of customers, contributors, and partners creating better technology the open source way.

A lot of companies will either hire an external firm or have a management off-site meeting where, over a couple of good bottles of wine, 10 people do this. It took us 5 months to do our mission statement because we did it from the bottom up. We took in every idea. We had debates. We had work groups. It changed, and it was modified and tweaked. But by the time we finished, everybody knows our mission statement and the subtleties of every word.
