Subject: Draft for review: Apache 2.0 beta press release
Date: Fri, Nov 14, 2014 18:26

Closing the loop for tonight: I've shared the draft (under embargo, and not including any cutting room floor bits) with the reporters I mentioned earlier.



I'm traveling tomorrow, but will be available via email so drop me a note if I can be of any help! Thanks again!



Have a great weekend.

Yep. All done now. I think this is reading great. Feel free to share

under embargo, obviously not including the stuff on the cutting room

floor. :) Let's reconvene tomorrow and give it one last pass.
