Subject [ApacheCon] Contacting dev@ and users@ lists
Date Mon, 25 Aug 2014 18:16:11 GMT
ApacheCon is now less than three months away, and it's time to contact 
our projects and tell them why they should attend the event. I need a 
lot of help in making this happen. With 190 projects, it's a significant 
task to send targeted messages, rather than just spamming all of our 
lists with a generic announcement.

What I need help with:

* Identifying the projects that have relevant content at ApacheCon
* Contacting the dev@ and users@ list of that project with a targeted 
message listing the talks/events that are of interest, including not 
only technical content but also the community content, lightning talks, 
evening events, and keynotes.  I could use some help writing the 
boilerplate text that we want to send out, which would then be filled in 
with content specific to that project or projects.
* Keeping track of what projects have been contacted, so that we're not 
spamming them.
* Getting individual speakers to blog about the presentations they will 
be giving, and mentioning these blog posts on the relevant mailing lists.

If you're willing to pitch in, please let me know, and I'll add you to 
the Google Doc where I'm tracking this stuff. This kind of message is 
always better received when it comes from someone that the community 
already knows.
