Neither 1.6.6 nor the upcoming 1.6.7 are Apache-branded releases. The
input that I received was that that was insufficient -- a branded
release was necessary.

I also pointed the IPMC at the three (primary) emails around the
release of 1.6.6. Again, the input was "not good enough".

So then I suggest a separate legal review, and request a wavier on
making a release. Then the input is "ask us again later".
