Ciao Shane!

1. Agreed. It would only make sense if someone like Roman spoke at our
event specifically on his experience of growing, mentoring, nurturing ASF
communities, which would be very desirable content for our event.
If that were the case, would it be appropriate to alert your users of
Roman's participation/ASF's representation at our conference via email or

On another thread with Roman, I gave more details about how I'd like
another speaker on open source community building. If it's relevant, I'm
also looking for discussion of how developer relations practices may differ
between engaging with dev communities from the heart of SV vs. in various
countries around the world. If Roman (or another ASF speaker) has
experiences and opinions on that topic, I feel that it would give great
guidance to our audience and enrich the conversation.

Let me know if I'm going down the wrong path, but I feel that someone
representing the ASF would be the right expert to talk about one of these
topics or both together. What do you think?

2. I will happily provide crepes as well. I don't see guidelines for crepes
here (, but we can update the
docs and provide the necessary crepes, both savory and sweet.
