Yes, I think there are quite a few problems in that article.  The bad
news is that I didn't mention any of these to the author, and certainly
not in any detail, so we have to find out who did and have them contact
the author, or the author found out himself somehow.

The good news is that the author really likes our project so I am hoping
we can inform him in a sensitive way.  He is trying to help us with
articles like this touting our release and stuff.

Josh Berkus is quoted in the article.  Josh, did you mention some of
these items to the author?
