I'll bite with some ideas:

Disclaimer up front, I haven't been to an ApacheCon before - though I
have been to scores of other OSS conferences and developer events.

So I think with as diverse a group as ApacheCon attracts and with the
comparatively limited time available that one or two big tracks are
not nearly as valuable to everyone as a number of smaller ones.

I'd also be interested in seeing Ignite sessions [1] early on - and
perhaps a day of BarCamp/(unconference) sessions following that. Or
perhaps that is something that we do in the evenings. I'd also like to
see if we can secure hacking spaces at night for folks to work on
things (particularly nice with $beverage and food availability).
