That's the usual way, yes. Discussing a project description in public is not bad, but please not with the "press release" in the subject. The actual press release should be developed on private@ so we only publish the final version on public lists. It's just that some Apache projects have been misrepresented in the news possibly because someone didn't have/gather the right information bits. I wouldn't like to see bad press on FOP because we didn't make it very clear what people can expect from the 1.0 release and why we made a 1.0 now. I've already found a note on the net where someone says that 1.0 has been released which is not the case. <snip/> Jeremias Maerki
