There are more. I'd like to see us then establish a deadline for this,
as well as, if it is within the protocols of Apache, the group
drafting it (?).

FWIW, OOo had a list, pr@, that drafted such sorts of things, in
addition to the release announcements. It was "private" in that you
had to be a member of the project to see the work, but it was by no
means "secret," as just about anybody could join the project and thus
see the work being done. (We had the normal issues regarding secrecy,
privacy, Foss, and marketing.)
