Subject Re: [ApacheCon US] Travel Assistance
Date Wed, 22 Jul 2009 23:45:00 GMT
Hi Grant,

I'm locate in the Bay Area, so I don't need hotel or car and I could 
drive to Oakland,
but I was not able to get my company to pay for a apachecon conference Pass.
I also wouldn't mind to do a presentation on the new QueryParser (JIRA 
1567),
if I'm able to get to ApacheCon.

As you said below:
"Applications are open to all open source developers who feel that
their attendance would benefit themselves, their project(s), the ASF
and open source in general. ... Conference fees either in full or in part"

Is the assistance restricted to people presenting and committers?

Regards,
Luis alves
