Subject Apachecon EU, and a possible AOO event.
Date Wed, 11 Jun 2014 06:21:15 GMT
Hi.

We have been offered a possibility to have a AOO event just after ApacheCon
EU.

ApacheCon EU is monday-wednesday, so the AOO event can be thursday and
friday, in parallel with a cloudstack event.

There are costs asociated with the offering, how to handle that is being
discussed by the PMC, either we find a sponsor and can make the event next
to free of charge, or we have to charge a fee and look for the more
professional users (goverments etc).

I think its a great opertunity to show that AOO is still a very active
project, and show what we do for other projects. I also believe its a great
opertunity for developers, QA, documenters to meet with real life users and
visa versa.

My aim with such an event, would just be the event itself, and the
marketing that follows. It can be a major kick to our project.

But in order for this to be a reality, the community needs to be behind the
idea, and we need a couple of people to stand up, and help get it organized.

Therefore my simple questions:
- Is this something the community at large wants to pursue ?
- Any volunteers to help ?

Looking forward to hear responses.
