I will happily submit a patch to add an "Events" tab after "Get Involved"
at the top and for time being link it to the ApacheCon site. Whoever has
karma will need to make it so. I don't know how many "events" ASF
participates in aside from ApacheCon but if any of them are well known, for
example OSCON,  I would think they deserve a mention. I, personally, do not
keep up with this, but I'm sure someone does. So, I would propose an
"Events" page to keep tract of some of these.  "ApacheCon" would, of
course, be one very important event.
