It looks like the version 1.1 update is close to merging. Congratulations, everyone!

We'll follow up more within each issue that makes up the update. But of course, Project Open Data is a living document and everyone - public and government workers - are encouraging to continue filing issues and pull requests to help further refine how federal data is managed and made public.

@jlberryhill It looks like we should be good to go here with all the documentation changes. We do still need to address (#385) which is on the to-do list of this pull request, but it's totally fine if we address that after this is merged - just as we did with the v1.0 documentation.
