Not the points above but the flowing

* That it's strange to organize Events under Apache

* The Apache fundrising politic

* The fact that Apache has no concept what to do with people outside 

* The fact that only no permisive Lisence are alowed

* The fact that we have to rewrite all the documentation including 
translation cause Lisence Issues

* The Fact that is nearly impossible to get a Native language List.

It does not mean that we have a complete split. But same kind of 
activity has simply no place unter apache, or are so hard to integrate 
that no one will do it. So it's much better to do it outside, as to skip 
it or do nothing.
