Berin,

I believe the deadline is actually the beginning of March (unless
there's a special deadline for the xml project).  I've seen a post 
from Greg referring to March 1st.  I've also seen other posts that 
have clarified that this really means any release from March 1st 
onward must use the new license.  So, if you weren't going to do a 
release until April, I guess you could have the rest of March to 
take care of everything; although it's obviously best to just get
this done as early as possible.  The license is a big improvement,
IMHO (although I'm sure many of us will miss the much shorter one, 
but at least you only need the copyright statement and reference
to the license in each source file:
http://www.apache.org/licenses/LICENSE-2.0.html#apply)
