I remember asking about potential sponsorship of the ASF for the
GetTogether. It was just an <aside/> in a mail to Brian (attached) cc-ed 
on the reorg list.

Related to that, I sent a mail regarding EurApacheCon to Ken some time
ago (attached too, sorry about the tone of that message).

What I'm trying to say is that this is a good idea. OTOH, I'm assured 
that we should be very careful about mixed interests:

Ken: please don't take the hyperlinked message above as critique. It is 
just one of the remarks I got from the GetTogether attendees: they 
really like it to be a GetTogether of users & developers, rather than a 
conference where sponsors automagically acquire the right for speaking 
slots. I think an exhibition, with enough time to visit that exhibition, 
is kind-of a nice balance between people being able to showcase their 
stuff, while not 'commercially polluting' the content exchange (and we 
made some errors against it during this first GetTogether ourselves).

But I'll quit ranting for now ;-)
