Actually I start to think that 6-8 Novembre is better.

My Reasons:

- as Mo mentioned, how likely is it that people can attend 2
conferences in one month? I consider it low. Not only from budget,
from timing too.

- ApacheCon is not only for "outsiders", its also great for
"insiders". I think some projects get a turbo boost when people can
meet face to face. Misunderstanding are reduce. Excluding the US would
be a pity, because many of us cannot meet their friends (not every eu
citizen has the money to go to na con).

- Again, I think WJAX adresses different people. Last time were many
talks on DevOps, Agile, How-To-Build-Your-Team and such. I never
attended an ApacheCon, but my impression is it is more about the
projects. Maybe we get ppl who never attend WJAX out of their holes

- Somebody said, with EU con we can experiment. Let's try and see if
we are really different or make up an attracting event :-)


That being said, when we decide on 6-8 I strongly believe we need to
get these news out through all channels asap before the WJAX ads
start.

Cheers
