Subject RE: December 2015 Report
Date Tue, 01 Dec 2015 16:42:48 GMT
Hi,

Thanks, Suresh, for this report draft.

+1 on the draft and the comments so far.

Though I'm not sure I'd use the word "invest" as that points to economic
interests in developing the project that perhaps aren't relevant. Phrasing
such as "much effort has gone into simplifying the install and build
processes" might be better.

Dave
