The Travel Assistance Committee (TAC) are pleased to announce that travel
assistance applications for ApacheCon North America 2016 are now open! This
announcement serves as a purpose for you (pmcs@) to let members of your
community know about both ApacheConNA 2016 and about the TAC assistance to
attend. Could you please forward this announcement to your community,
