Are we talking about events at which any Apache project shows up; or
are we talking about where the Foundation shows up? The former is
likely to be very significant. One of the projects I work on has
multiple events a month (meetup groups, exhibiting at events, etc).
There are a few similar projects. Meanwhile the Foundation has very
few events that it has an official presence at.
