The apacheCON team did that with LF and marketing, and it was actually
discussed quite  while ago.

This is the first time we divide the traditional apacheCON, so the
intention is (and was)
to make a clear statement, this is not the old apacheCON.

Actually while we discussed it, one of the ideas was "apacheCON: big data",
but
LF preferred "apache big data" and since it is their event they choose.

No just to avoid some confusion. Think of our homepage, travel assistance,
reports etc, that
is all done combined for the 2 events.

Let me put it like I see it personally, despite contracts, producers etc,
and please bear
in mind, other people have different views.

to me the total "thing" is apacheCON, that consist of 2 unique events (big
data and core).
