Subject Re: Draft for review: Apache 2.0 beta press release
Date Sat, 15 Nov 2014 17:17:45 GMT
Hi everyone --I know we're very close to the final-final edit.

When should we issue the announcement? 

Do you want it to happen at 10.30AMCET (4.30AM ET), when Jan first gets on stage for the State of the Union/Couch presentation?

Or afterwards at 11.30AM CET (5.30AM ET)?

Or at another time altogether?

Please let me know so I can get everything lined up.

Thanks so much,
Sally

I fixed the subtle "principal" vs. "principle" typo in the draft. Just a note in case anyone plans to share it further.

Thanks, all, for the great work on this! --Mike
