Dave,

I would take some issue with your comments here.

If you look at what is happening right now, the entire Drill team is
focussed on making a release and particularly focussed on getting the IP
issues right.  There have been several release candidates posted and the
community members have been reviewing these and working through the
identified issues very systematically.  This is the first release of this
code under Apache guidelines and most of the developers are new to Apache.
 As such, it is hardly surprising that there is a lack of experience in
getting the form right for IP clearance.  The current process is a good
learning experience and contributors are pitching in whole-heartedly and
almost all issues have been addressed.

As I pointed out when you asked a question on the mailing list, the lack of
incubator disclaimer had already been noted, a JIRA filed and a patch
posted even before you noticed it.  I would like to also point out also
that all of the mentors have been active in reviewing release candidates
and the mentors were the ones who first raised the IP issues.

I would request that you rephrase or retract the comment "does not seem to
include any drive to make any release".  There is absolutely a drive for a
release and it is bearing fruit as we write.

We do appreciate your positive comment on our community building efforts.
 We are working *very* hard on that (along with building kick-ass
technology into kick-ass code packaged up in a kick-ass and fully IP
cleared release).
