Subject Re: [PROPOSAL] Apache OpenOffice Conference 2012
Date Thu, 21 Jun 2012 02:23:24 GMT
As stated before, you can count me in for the CFP Jury. I've been a 
member of the jury for the OOo Conferences 2007 - 2010. In 2010, I have 
been the head of the jury. I would do this again, if no one else 
volunteers. But, it's unlikely that I will attend the AOOC 2012 in 
person. To my experience it's preferable if the head of jury attends in 
person because there are always last minute challenges (sometimes during 
the coffee break) to tackle.
