Subject RE: Anyone interested in a one day event in Bangalore?

Hi Nick,

We are good to go except that we have to finalize sponsorship. We are in discussion with couple
of companies (including Citrix) for co-sponsorship.  

On the agenda side, we are figuring out good topics and speakers from CloudStack and Hadoop.

Please give us two more days. 

Thanks and Regards

Are we good to announce this now, or is there more stuff to be done first? 
To announce via ASF channels, we largely just need the date (is Saturday 30th confirmed as
fine?), the venue, and where people get more info + signup.

Does all of that make sense to everyone? I'm happy to explain more / point to examples of
past sucessful events for guidance if needed!
