Subject Re: Apache project guidelines docs += independence?
Date Tue, 17 May 2011 23:53:47 GMT

I think there is a typo in http://community.apache.org/. Under "Event organisers and speakers",
there is a "[...] will fined our speakers section useful.".

I'm new to Apache community and liked the new structure of the site :)

Bruno
