Subject Re: ApacheCon Austin keynotes (and other stuff)
Date Tue, 06 Jan 2015 21:48:29 GMT
By the way, if anyone has any reason at all that one of the proposed 
keynoters is going to be an embarrassment, *PLEASE* speak up sooner 
rather than later, and don't be worried about hurting feelings. 
Canceling a keynote at the last minute is a HUGE embarrassment, not to 
mention cost, and if you know something I don't, tell me now before I 
buy someone plane tickets.

No, I won't be asking any politicians. Ever again.
