This is a very nice offer, Dennis. It would be great to have an OpenOffice
rep there with Melissa and Shane.

Basically, Apache will be having a table at the upcoming OSCON in Portland.
Details on OSCON can be found at:


When I discovered this a day or so ago via the Board report that was sent
on June 18, I sent a message to d...@community.apache.org asking about what
purpose the table served and if projects could/should contribute in some

So, the Apache reps will be at the table the days the expo is open -- July
21-23.  Initially, I was under the impression we had some "treats" to
contribute but perhaps we don't currently.

OK, so the next question.

What was on these popular "pins" that have been used n the past? Just the
gull logo or ??? It looks like we could get some 1" circle pins very
inexpensively if this is the case. I would be happy to cover the cost of
these and have them shipped to ASF headquarters in time for transport to
OSCON. They wouldn't "say" anything with just our current flat logo, but
they would be good I think.
