Subject Re: Suggestion: Weekly news for Apache projects
Date Fri, 02 May 2014 16:36:34 GMT
Thanks, Noah. This is fantastic.

Indeed, pmcs@ is a great place to share your success. And, as we're beginning to develop a
more formal set of guidelines on how projects can market/promote themselves, the timing is
perfect.

Keep up the great work!

Bon weekend,
Sally
