 Glossary of Apache-Related Terms - The Apache Software Foundation
The concept of 'merit' is central to the Apache philosophy and community methodology.
Merit is a qualitative and subjective term, referring essentially to attributes such as those below; however, it can probably be summed up as the combination of the worth of one's accomplishments and the respect of one's peers.
As it has been put, 'the more you do the more you are allowed to do.' As a person acquires merit, his or her stature in the community grows, and (to a certain extent) the weight given to his or her opinions.
