There are so many assumptions in here.

There is an Apache Conference committee. [1]

And since Spoon is a 3rd Party and not Apache Flex. There are rules for using Apache branding

For an Apache BarCamp San Francisco (no travel for me:) or wherever, there is an ML on Conference

Or, prepare to have a presence at the next Apachecon ...
