Subject Re: Apache Event in Inda (December timeframe)
Date Wed, 18 Sep 2013 07:37:57 GMT
I'm trawling through my mail backlog now that I'm in a semi-permanent home
here in the US (my furniture even arrives on Friday!). Sorry for not
picking this up earlier.

I recently updated the trademark policy for getting approval for events -
see http://www.apache.org/foundation/marks/events.html

What would the goal be, from an Apache perspective?

Do we have people in India (or willing to travel) to make this happen?

Are you hoping to make a case for some financial support for Apache
representation?

What support do you want from the ASF (other than financial)?

Note we've just started to think about providing an Event in a Box to
support activities such as this. It's currently empty so even brainstorming
around this now would be valuable even if you decide not to go ahead with
it.
