Subject: Represent your project at ApacheCon


5 days from the end of the CFP, we have only 50 talks submitted. We need
three times that just to fill the space, and preferably a lot more so that
we have some variety to choose from to put together a schedule.

I know that we usually have over half the content submitted in the last 48
hours, so I'm not panicking yet, but it's worrying. More worrying, however
is that 2/3 of those submissions are from the Usual Suspects (ie, httpd and
Tomcat), and YOUR project isn't represented.

We would love to have a whole day of Lucene, and of OpenOffice, and of
Cordova, and of Felix and Celix and Helix and Nelix. Or a half day.

We need your talk submissions. We need you to come tell the world why your
project matters, why you spend your time working on it, and what exciting
new thing you hacked into it during the snow storms. (Or heat wave, as the
case may be.)

Please help us get the word out to your developer and user communities that
we're looking for quality talks about their favorite Apache project, about
related technologies, about ways that it's being used, and plans for its
future. Help us make this ApacheCon amazing.
