Subject RE: Marketing of Apachecon ACEU15 within the ASF
Date Mon, 20 Apr 2015 15:11:54 GMT
I agree with both points of view here. Relying on PMCs to plug a conference with 2-5 talks
of interest to them has had little success. There is a reason for this.

Moving forwards the event will have more content for some audiences.

It would be good to find better ways of reaching our dev/user communities. But we can't spam
project lists for foundation activities.

And how effective was that? Was that measured?
