ApacheCon has a rule about "no other conferences within 3 weeks before or
after ApacheCon".  Naturally, they want sponsors to put money into
ApacheCon and attendees to buy tickets.  Anything that looks like it
undercuts that would be denied.  It might be possible to convince
ApacheCon that our little 10-30 person get-together does not harm their
business.  Not sure.

FWIW, at the last (and only, so far) FlexJS World Tour, we only had about
10 non-committers show up.  Many more attended on-line.  So maybe the next
get-together should just be on-line.

Thoughts?
