Both Rich and Jan have made the same point: We need to better job of communicating our desire
for the LF to run free - this is my personal takeaway here

I'm not concerned about ApacheCon becoming "unapache" - that's why we chose the LF and I believe
that's the value LF see in ApacheCon. Their overall mission in this regard is aligned with
our own.

These are expectations that we simply need to do a better job of communicating with them when
we sit down with them in Austin. I think they are doing their best to satisfy the expectations
that we have communicated, and we need to communicate better. I think, in retrospect, I spent
too much time talking about how things used to be, and not enough time saying that it's their
job to set the tone going forward.
