and one about OSGi from Marcel's friend).

Based on the response so far, it seems we already have a healthy list of people that would
like to give a talk, which is great.

I will leave that to Marcel to explain more about it.

He agreed to pay for a venue, I'm in progress of trying to book it and will report back here
when I have news. Luminis does not want anything in return as far as formal sponsoring goes.

Same here. For now I'm just going to move on and assume we can organize this and call it an
Apache Meetup.

>   One last thing, Recently I was introduced to Meetup.com [1], which is a very nice tool
for planning meetups, small events and even big ones, I suggest to use it for planning the
events suggested above, I would also appreciate having feedback/comments about that.

+1, looks good

Greetings, Marcel
