And I really appreciate your energy and contributions.  And you are not the
only one.  I hope we will find a way to donate the Falcon code earlier than
is now stated.  It will depend on time and resources.

Maybe Falcon will do a non-NDA pre-release so you can see the code, but I
don't think you can go modify it and put it in the Apache SVN.  Not without
someone doing the whole legal review thing that has delayed getting the
framework in.

The biggest obstacle will likely be that management will come and ask me how
much distraction it was to donate the framework and the answer will make
them skittish about donating Falcon until things "quiet down".

Once I get through donating the framework and then 3.x, I will look into
ways to donate Falcon earlier.
