Subject Re: Podlings take notice! Travel Assistance to ApacheCon US 2008 - 3 days to apply!

Podlings: this is *your* chance to grow awareness of your project
within the ASF. It worked wonders for Wicket when we came to ApacheCon
EU in 2007 (and graduated roughly a month after that). You won't be
able to comprehend "Community" to the fullest if you haven't visited
ApacheCon.

If you are unable to attend on your own terms, perhaps this initiative
will help you come to ApacheCon.
