Hi Simon,

My apologies if this proposal is out of place on either list, but I think it's worth thinking about 
early.  Obviously I speak for neither Apache nor TDF but I have a deep concern for 
and am very keen to see the community healed.

Given that:
*  both LibreOffice (October, Paris) and Apache (November, Vancouver) have conferences in the 
second half of the year,
*  between them cover both Europe and North America,
*  plenty of people will be travelling anyway to attend them,
*  it's much easier to co-operate with people you've met

I would like to suggest to both TDF and Apache that they host an " Unity Summit" (or 
some less cheesy name if you prefer!)
yes, even if ; I prefer a less cheesy name ;)
at both conferences, inviting everyone associated in any way with the overall 
community (open source projects like LibreOffice or the proposed Apache project, their direct 
downstreams like NeoOffice, their commercial derivatives like Symphony) to attend, preferably 
without charge.
I really support your idea for both attending, the nearest members are, from a geographical or community point of view
The event would need a neutral Chair/Organiser and a suitably egalitarian agenda, naturally.  Is 
this worth exploring?
Kind regards
