Hi Tina,
Thank you very much for reviewing the updated LD cookbook.  I appreciate your feedback on suitability for a gov't audience.  Thanks too for fixing some typos, I'll endeavor to fix up all the other items you suggested by early next week.  I have some references to add for licenses and certainly many topics to link within the cookbook. 

Thank you again & we look forward to seeing you at the F2F on Jan 25th.

You've kept it high-level enough that they would be able to understand the content and develop a list of appropriate questions for colleagues, staff, and vendors after reading it.

Knowing how things work around here, someone might be referred to a certain section of the cookbook rather than the whole thing, so it would be good to have the links in the section.

It would probably be a good idea in Step #6 to clarify that the WG is not recommending any of the licenses but is only giving examples of the types of licenses available. It looks like Boris may not be done with this section, so I apologize if I am jumping the gun there.

For those of used to reading W3C recommendations, it is not the lower level tech detail required to implement a protocol or feature.
