Subject Application Period Opens for Travel Assistance to ApacheCon US 2008
Date Fri, 26 Sep 2008 05:28:09 GMT
Hi,

The ApacheCon US 2008 conference is getting closer. If you are
interested in participating but would have a hard time financing the
trip, the Apache Travel Assistance Committee may be able to help you.
See below for their announcement about the financial support that the
Apache Software Foundation is making available to qualified
developers.
