Although it may help to understand what other Apache Developers have
come to expect (not that this should limit you).

It's about meeting people you  work with on open source projects. It's
about learning how to work more effectively with them. It's about
finding new people and new collaboration opportunities. It's learning
other projects. it's about building community both within and beyond
your projects. It's about communicating to potential contributors why
they should care and how they can engage.

So, as Don says, anything goes, at least at this stage of planning.
