I'm very sorry. I have been trying to actively train myself to write 
that correctly. I won't do that again.

I suspect that what we're looking at is "free with ApacheCon attendance" 
and then some nominal fee for everyone else. We're looking into what 
would be the minimum break-even fee that we could charge for this, if we 
skip all amenities like lunch, event events, and so on, and we'll get 
back to you on that just as soon as we can.
