Thanks and +1 in general, but:

- Be sure to redirect *all* old URLs (even if just a 301 response)

- We should discuss if we want to change the focus of the listing page -
or if we want to have two pages, or categories (Apache-specific vs.
general FOSS topics).  The listing says:

"To be included here, talks must have gotten good feedback at an
ApacheCon, and must include slides and preferably video/audio."

I put that in explicitly to keep the relevancy and quality of the talks
high; i.e. talks that ASF community members have vetted and think are
broadly useful.  We (no longer) want to restrict to ApacheCon, but we
may want to curate talks specifically for Apache project audiences (i.e.
that include ASF procedures) versus some broader FOSS "how to" talks
that some of our speakers give.

Personally, I'd also suggest that submissions are restricted to Apache
committers as speakers, since this is about our communities.
