In an ideal world, I’d still like to see an ApacheCon with a 3 or 4 days program:
>> * 1-2 days of BarCamp / Project Summits, at the conference location, sponsored for
any projects who wants to organize one. I’m OK with requiring an ApacheCon registration
go participate here.
>> * 2 days of a topic based, 2-track Apache related conference. I would strongly encourage
that we broaden the horizon here, such that a talk would not necessarily need to be specific
to one (or a few). Almost everyone is using at least one Apache Project for any solution they
made, and I think it’d be interesting to learn more about how ASF projects are used together
with other projects for example.
