	I'm having trouble selling attending ApacheCon to my funding wardens
	this year -- directional changes in the organization require much
	more justifying documentation, as well as commitment to what
	tangible projects for the organization WILL DIRECTLY FLOW FROM MY
	ATTENDING.

	As the organization I'm working with begins to spread more into
	the areas of big data and cloud computing, it almost seems like
	Cloutstack Collaboration Conference might be a better fit -- UNLESS
	I know that at least as significant content for these areas will
	still be part of ApacheCon too.

	But without even a tentative session schedule, I can't do much more
	than guess, and certainly not soon enough to beat the January 31st deep
	discount deadline.
	
	1) Has a decision been made to maintain at least as significant
		coverage of big data and cloud computing within the ApacheCon
		tracks as last year?   Or is all that content spun off into the
		Cloudstack conference?

	2) Will a tentative session schedule for both these conferences be
		published before the NEXT discount deadline of March 14th?
