Using email to get an organization's name out in front of people who 
don't know about it has a name and there's an ASF project whose purpose 
is identifying such email so the targeted users can keep it out of their 
mailboxes entirely.

Thankfully, outright spam to people who don't know about the ASF doesn't 
seem to be what is being proposed. I suspect that the DeveloperWeek 
organization may not understand that there is no marketing email list at 
the ASF and that the best they can get is what Sharan has already
