Subject Re: Solutions.Hamburg: Invitation to provide ApacheContent
Date Thu, 25 May 2017 13:14:57 GMT
So, based on the many positive responses, it looks like we could
definitely put together a credible track, even without doing a broader CFP.

Christofer, what's your final take on this - do we want to try to tackle
more than one day? Do you think we should pursue three days - one
"Apache Way" kind of day, and two of project/technical content? Or
should we stick to a single day?
