Subject Re: ApacheCon's EU 2012 and NA 2013 - save the dates and get involved!
Date Fri, 04 May 2012 19:58:30 GMT
For me it also works out fine it seems. I'll try to get my 3 WJAX talks done at the last 2
days, so I only need to travel to germany once - first attend ApacheCon for 2 days, then move
to munich.

LieGrue,
strub
