I don't think that has been decided, and I would say that momentum is still
towards cutting a release based on what Adobe donates, without any changes,
and cutting another later with some changes.  I'm not sure how much leeway
we have in what we call it, but I would probably try to label the first one
with "Practice" or something like that and note on the website and readme
that is is just that.  But really, we do want folks to download it and play
with it, so we will have users at that point, and they will have discussions
like, "I can't get it installed" or "It app doesn't run", and "This isn't
quite the same as the Adobe release".  We won't be packaging it with any
sort of installer, at least in this first practice build.  An Apache release
can only contain source code.
