Note that I submitted a request on behalf of the OpenOffice PMC to have 
the traditional "ODF Editors" devroom that has been co-organized by 
OpenOffice since 2014.

I honestly believe that it would be closer to the spirit of FOSDEM if 
other ASF projects tried to join a devroom where they fit in a technical 
sense more than in a community sense, especially if you take into 
account that one of the very few requirements for presentations is to be 
of a technical nature - and in my case I will surely find more familiar 
a technical presentation about a non-ASF, ODF-related project than one 
about an ASF-operated but ODF-unrelated one.

That said, I surely don't want to discourage you from applying for an 
"Apache Devroom". Just consider that some projects might join other 
devrooms not because they feel "special" or "bigger" or "more 
important", but because in the very competitive FOSDEM process this 
gives them the opportunity to better fit the FOSDEM requirements.
