These are all excellent questions to ask about our approval for a third 
party event, and a good discussion.

 From experience, I know that Citrix has been doing a good job with past 
events and other materials at respecting and promoting the Apache brand 
independently from their own projects - as well as the actual sponsoring 
of these kind of items for the project's benefit.  I also know that many 
of the Citrix employees who are committers on Apache CloudStack have 
done a great job of ensuring it stays that way.

Given that and given the past successful events, I'm quite happy with 
this plan. I only wish I could attend this year!

would be doing this and we were approved last year and I believe that some of the Apache folks
might have been at the event. We don't plan to modify the format if that was acceptable.
