I would like to see three "packaged" versions of this agenda:

1) Single-session, "Apache Way" talk. Not really much to do here other
than describe what MUST and SHOULD be covered in such a talk.

2) 3 session Apache Way track. Lists three recommended talks, or perhaps
some required and a selection of optional, depending on the focus of the

3) Full-day (6 or 7 session) track, with required and recommended talks.

The reason that I want these is that we are currently being asked by 3
different events to show up with this curated content, to own an Apache
track at those events. We need to have a way to build an agenda for
those events quickly, and then approach individuals to ask them to give
specific talks, and present them with starter material for those

The track at ApacheCon last week was an *awesome* start on this, and has
been getting all kinds of positive feedback on the interwebs. And I
think we'll get years of use out of the videos.
