While this is probably a good idea, I think it's not going to
work. It's obvious that most people can't make the date, or the
place. If the purpose of the conference is to work out Apache 2.0, it
really doesn't make any sense to postpone it until late August (as has
been suggested), since that means that we can't do any work on 2.0
until then.

So I think email may have to be the means that we figure this
out. Heck, it's worked for everything else Apache's done in the past
two years. We just need to figure out some clear vauge goals for
Apache 2.0, assign people to oversee each of them, and do it.
