As far as our current draft policy [1] goes, and after reading through
the sparse guidance I could find on www.a.o [2], here's how I'm interpreting it:

- Event sponsorship (I would say that this is typically paid, but
  sometimes "sponsorship" can be free) requires approval via this list and
  approval from ConCom (see "Sponsoring Events" at [1]).

- Large events, like CCC12, absolutely require following the rules from

- Exhibiting at an event, if being done by a committer, can be done
  without requiring approval (see "Exhibiting at Events" at [1]).

- Meetups, small events, etc... don't require approval, but we did
  document some rules about them (see "Meetup groups..." at [1]).

- Speaking at an event about the project shouldn't require any approvals
  at all.

And don't forget that any "Non-software goods" produced using the
project's mark require approval from the PMC via this list.

Anyone have a better / more accurate representation?
