FTR, we are not going to vote on legal policy.  The board will vote,
if anyone.  Legal policies are not a PMC thing.  I implement them as
needed or directed by the board.

I don't really care about the nit (it is present in the existing
header text).  It is just something I noticed while implementing
the changes for Jackrabbit.

*shrug*  version numbers are cheap.  I thought we only required them
to change if the compiled bits would change or if the release was
already announced.
