The values shown below are those that should be used in the DOAP files maintained by ASF Projects.

The Categories listed in a DOAP file may be any combination of the following. Each should be included on a seperate line as shown in the example below.

This list is not meant to be definitive. If there is not a suitable category then please use a suitable term and send an email to site-dev at with details of your addition.

Remember that the idea behind categories is to create groups of related projects. Please do not add every possible descriptive keyword for your project as a category. Instead, add a category if it will be useful for linking your project to other projects, and in particular, other Apache projects.
