Subject Re: [VOTE] Apache Drill 0.4.0-incubating release
Date Fri, 08 Aug 2014 15:56:17 GMT
One additional thought.  As I'm thinking more about the NOTICE and LICENSE
files I think it would be really helpful to have some reviews from you guys
much earlier in the process than the next release vote.  While the docs are
helpful and we'll do our best, I'm skeptical we'll get it exactly right on
our next attempt.  Justin, would you be willing to review these changes
once we get them up so that we can make sure we're not making other foolish
