Subject Re: First draft of slides for ApacheCon

Great slides. A few comments for you to take on board or ignore at your
pleasure (they are opinion not fact so you may not agree)...

Slide 5: personally I avoid 'viral' and still k to 'reciprocal' no need to
further alienate those who have a preference for reciprocal licences (I.e
use passive rather than aggressive language). By the same token I'd say
"not only about" as opposed to "not about". Personally I prefer things to
be free, but I'm pragmatic and recognise that sometimes freedom will need
to be compromised. Our licence is ideal for this, it provides choice and
uses economics to drive freedom.

Slide 9: I guess it depends on how you deliver this slide whether I agree
or not. The foundation will provide any "exotic" infrastructure that can be
justified. I remember telling a podling they couldn't have Git, for
example. I immediately went to infra and with the support of Jukka we got
permission for that podling to  be the first one to adopt Git. Perhaps just
add the word "unjustified", it's. Less final.

Slide 19: To graduate a project must demonstrate the ability to grow, not
necessarily to have grown. Therefore I think this slide is too absolute in
its "grow or retire" message.

This looks great, the above points are all minor and you should feel free
to ignore or adapt as you see fit.
