Subject Re: [Announce] Now Open: Call for Participation for ApacheCon North America
Date Tue, 05 Apr 2011 14:31:49 GMT
I'm planning on attending ApacheCon. We've had a Geronimo track the past two years. And if
there's sufficient interest, I'll help coordinate another one... Any PMC member can help coordinate
also... :)
