A good example for the way Apache should go, was the booth (stand) next
to us. There were a lot of "yapc"s all around the world,before perl
people realize that it is a good idea to have booths on "normal" free
software conferences. Even there was a perl dev room at FOSDEM there
were a lot of talks at the perl booth too.

Apache was not present on "normal" free software conferences I know,
before OpenOffice became an Apache project and continued marketing
activities on these conferences.

Everybody knows the Apache webserver and OpenOffice is wellknown too.
But Apache as whole and many Apache projects might have advantages by
better public relations.

So it might be our gift as a "new" Apache project to promote Apache (as
a whole) as a more and better integrated part of the free software

So let show us the diversity of Apache!

Kind regards

P.S.: Thank you very much for your commendation, Jan.
