Last month Luis Villa (incidentally, on the DPL's advisory board) reviewed a manual of style for contract drafting by editing Twitter's Innovator's Patent Agreement per the manual's advice. I enjoyed Villa's post, but have not attempted to discern (and discernment may be beyond my capability) how closely DPL 1.0 follows the manual's advice. By the way, Villa's edit of the IPA per the manual did improve its automated readability metrics:

Luis Villa
Luis Villa is Deputy General Counsel at the Wikimedia Foundation. Previously he was an associate in the Palo Alto office of the Greenberg Traurig law firm, where his practice focused on counseling companies on intellectual property, technology licensing and related matters, with a particular focus on open source licensing. His clients were both for-profits and non-profits, including Mozilla, the Wikimedia Foundation, Amazon, and Facebook. He also advised Google in the Oracle v. Google trial, and led the first revision of the Mozilla Public License in a decade. Luis is a director of the Open Source Initiative, and serves as an invited expert on the World Wide Web Consortium's Patents and Standards Interest Group. Before law school, Luis worked in software, including several years working on the GNOME Linux desktop at a small startup.
GNOME and KDE priorities [LWN.net]

We also spoke to KDE core developer Zack Rusin about the 3.4 release and GNOME release team member Luis Villa about GNOME's 2.10 release.
...
According to Villa, the 2.10 release will see more bugfixes than usual. He said that, depending on how you track bugs, the 2.10 release [GNOME screenshot] already includes between 1,000 and 5,000 closed bugs -- and that's before the final feature freezes and bug fixing before the final release. Villa did note that the GNOME team always places a high priority on quality control, but that this release seemed to have a higher than normal number of bugfixes.
Another focus for the GNOME team in 2.10 is implementation of freedesktop.org standards agreed upon by the GNOME and KDE teams. Villa noted that the GNOME team had revamped the menu structure to comply with the freedesktop.org menu specification .
The GNOME release adds a new "Places" menu to the panel that allows the user to quickly navigate between their home folder, the desktop, CD-ROM and network locations. Villa said that the GNOME team has also addressed some of the complaints about the file chooser from the last version of GNOME, and that the typeahead feature has returned.
Both desktops are increasingly friendly for users with disabilities. Villa said that the 2.10 release did not focus on improvements to accessibility because GNOME is " already far and away the leaders in accessiblity ."
...
According to Villa, the Gstreamer integration is greatly improved in GNOME 2.10. This is the first release where Totem has been integrated into the GNOME release process, and Villa also said it was the first release where the Totem team had worked more closely with the Gstreamer team. Totem had previously worked with Xine, but Villa said that Xine had " legal encumbrances" that made it more difficult for vendors to distribute. There is also a new and improved mixer applet in GNOME 2.10 that hides some of the complexity from the user, at least at first. Villa said users would still be able to get to all of the functionality of their sound card with the mixer, but wouldn't be presented with it at first glance.
...
Evolution already includes the Exchange plugin, and Villa said that Evolution was also getting a lot of work to be compatible with Novell GroupWise.
