A simple suggestion on the name - that VCL be "transferred" to Apache.org
and become the official project name. Current users of VCL already wrap
their own identity around VCL. NC State would/could still use the qualified
name NCSU VCL or NC State's VCL and others would/could do likewise. For
example the Virginia group already calls their initiative Virginia VCL. I
believe there are no specific acknowledgement requirements for use of
apache.org software? Meaning that anyone could add a personalized qualifier
or not and a root linkage statement (like powered by Apache.org's VCL) or
not. Seems to me that providing a combined personal identifier and default
root linkage mechanism would help, not hurt the Apache brand. What I can say
is that this assessment is consistent with and supported by our experience

Other than this
I don't think so.
