Subject Re: Draft for review: Apache 2.0 beta press release
Date Fri, 14 Nov 2014 23:26:21 GMT
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.
Lynnette

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.
