I'm guessing you want some feedback on this press release draft ;)  If
not, feel free to ignore these, I won't mind.

Why didn't the 1.0 press release ever go out?  Just curious.

Overall I think 1.1 release is quite good.  I have a couple of minor
(some would say nit-picky) suggestions:

- Nowhere is the ESB acronym expanded or explained.  I think somewhere
near the top of the press release, ideally in the byline, you should
actually say Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) instead of just using the
- Having two acronyms in the byline, ESB and SOA, sounds like buzzword
soup to me
- The C in "Committer" (second quote) does not need to be capitalized
- "configuration based" should be hyphenated I think
- I'm actually not even sure what "configuration based" means.  Does
it mean no coding necessary, only editing configuration files?
- Microsoft Word is flagging "The Apache Synapse Team have" with the
green grammar squiggly line thing.  It should probably be "The Apache
Synapse team has" (singular and lower case T).

By the way, I personally would appreciate draft press releases sent in
the body of the email as opposed to a Microsoft Word (or any other
format) attachment.  It's easier to quickly read and respond.  It's
also less likely to get flagged as a virus or spam message.

Good luck,
