Subject Re: ApacheCon session recording - sponsor needed
Date Tue, 07 Apr 2015 19:52:47 GMT
We have a sponsor covering ONLY the keynotes. So, yes, we definitely 
still need a sponsor to cover recording the sessions if that's a 
possibility. I can make the necessary connections. I assume there's 
still time to do this, although I'm not certain how long it'll take to 
set things up.
