As I said, the purpose is to invite people that are currently totally 
out of the community to participate to something that will be close to 
the real community, thus educating them and showing them that opensource 
is not only about downloading and using, but also about sharing.

the idea to host it here at the ASF to avoid both community and brand 
fragmentation. Hence this vote.
