They were manually justified in order to make them easier to read,
depending more on the length and substance of the paragraph rather

The nominal indentation is three spaces on both margins and the 
is presented as if it were an outline, again for ease of reading.
That is simply a personal preference of mine.

The legal name of the foundation is "The Apache Software Foundation".
