Your proposal will be put into a pool of source material for the
conference and it will be weighed against the other submissions. So
let the organizers decide whether or not the content is the right

In the past two years, we have had a lot of presentations coming from
"the community" which have generally been along the lines of what you
have above, rather than "here's how to configure product X". I tend to
prefer presentations that come from outside the core committers,
because it shows what you guys are actually DOING with e.g. Tomcat.

I'd encourage everyone to submit anything they think might be even
somewhat related. You don't have to write the presentation before
proposing it. Most presenters I know of are often continuing to work
on their slides up until the day of their presentations :)
