Subject Re: Apache Gora March board report (draft)

+1 from me, Lewis, Looks awesome. RE: gora-sql: what are the next steps there?
Is it something the legal committee can help out with? At worst, I'd imagine, we 
could move gora-sql to a non-released area of SVN and then push forward with
an 0.2 that doesn't include it?
