Subject Re: Application for FOSDEM Devroom - Unsuccessful
Date Wed, 11 Oct 2017 16:40:46 GMT

It was the request for the Apache Community and Collaboration devroom (Apache CoLab) that
was unsuccessful. 

So yes,  once the CFP opens for the Community devroom, people can submit topics or presentations
for it.

Thanks
Sharan
