Hello PMC Chairs --

The ApacheCon Call for Participation has opened today!

We encourage you to help promote both ApacheCon and your Project's 
presence at the event: please drop a line to your dev and user mailing 
lists, forward the ASF blog announcement, retweet updates from the 
@TheASF and @ApacheCon feeds, blog about the CFP being open/your 
participation, and ask members of your community to help spread the word.

This year's CFP process is different.

Every submission must be made online at 
("Submit" link, online submission form is towards the bottom of the 
guidelines). Each week between now and the close of the CFP (29 April at 
midnight PT) we will be collecting submissions and forwarding them to 
you (Excel doc; possibly an Open Office spreadsheet as well).

We need you to please --

1) Note which sessions are of interest to your Project;
2) Note any sessions that would fall under your domain but are not 
relevant to you; and
3) Assign a contact person who can answers any questions we may have

We will be updating the spreadsheets with Projects' comments as well as 
any potential cross-pollination opportunities (where a proposal would 
fall under more than one theme/track, for example). This is intended to 
be a collaborative process: we encourage you to contact us with any 
questions or concerns.

Once the CFP closes, we will group the sessions and assign a theme/track 
chair to work with you during the decision-making and speaker 
notification process (20 May-30 June). If you would like to propose a 
volunteer to act as theme/track chair or organizer (preferably the same 
as the above contact person, but we're otherwise accommodating), please 
do so as well.

We will be posting promotional resources online and opening registration 
in the near future, and will be keeping you abreast of new developments 
as they arise.

Thank you in advance for your help. We look forward to working with you.
