Organizing the Lucene meetup (Was: ApacheCon US)

One thing we should get in place is a wiki page or something similar
for the Lucene meetup planned for Tuesday evening. In Amsterdam
earlier this year we used the wiki page at [1] to track things.

The MoinMoin wiki at Apache has been a bit flaky lately, so I'm not
sure how much we can rely on it for the next few weeks. If people
like, I can set up a simple web site and a sign-up form like the ones
I did for the NoSQL meetup I'm organizing, see
http://www.nosqloakland.org/.

I thought we had one up already on the Lucene wiki.  Otherwise, go for  
it.

What time does it mean "Tuesday night" ? I'd love to attend but my
flight arrives at 7pm ... :(

I still plan to do the Katta introduction. Is someone officially  
maintain the page or should I just go ahead and remove the question  
mark myself?

I cross linked to that over from the main meetup organization page on the
apachecon wiki, and tried to fill in some of the known details.

: What time does it mean "Tuesday night" ? I'd love to attend but my flight
: arrives at 7pm ... :(

According to main schedule all the meetups start at 8PM.  (There's no end
time listed, so i suspect we can hang out as long as we want w/o anyone
kicking us out of the room)

If you're flying into Oakland, you might make it in time (If you're flying
into SFO, you might be able to catch the tail end)

Can actually everyone come to the meetups or only people who registered
for ApacheCon and paid conf fees?

It's SFO .. ah, well, you can't have everything in life.

Well .... it's not as bad as it may seem.  *if* your flight is on time,
and *if* you take Bart instead of renting a car, and *if* you don't check
luggage, you can probably be on the 7:21 train getting to the hotel lobby
@ 8:10.

Oh wait ... are you going through customs/imigration @SFO? ... because
then you're probably screwed.

The wiki is back to normal so I guess we can stick with that.

I added some more details to the wiki page, including a signup form so
we can better track the number of attendees.

Karl had a good point on java-dev (in reply to one of my wiki updates)    
that we havent' really done a lot to publicise that the MeetUp is open to
anyone who wants to come, even if they aren't registered for the
confrence).

We should proably add this to the main site, and send anouncement email
to all the user lists (w/replies to general).

If anyone with, uh, better grammer and spelling then me (i?) wants to take
a crack at it please speak up -- otherwise i'll do it tonight.

Email sent to all the *-user@lucene lists i could find.  I just repurposed
something grant sent to the bay area Lucene meetup group.  (I'm not
subscribed to most of those user lists, so if you are a list moderator
pelase do me a favor and check for it in your moderation queue)

It occured to me that updating the main site was probably overkill -- if
you are flying in for ApacheCon you already know, if not you aren't going
to come unless you're local, and we don't post every local meetup on the
site -- so i skipped it.

The other thing we need to do at this point, is make sure our initial  
speakers are lined up.  I am sure Erik and Stefan will be there, but  
not sure on Thorsten and droids.  If not, maybe Yonik or I can do our  
what's new in Solr 1.4 or I can do what's new in Lucene 2.9.

Presumably a projector is going to be made available?  Including for the
lightning talks?

Will this be resolved one way or the other before Tuesday, or should I prepare
two talks, one with projector and one without projector?

Is this something ApacheCon takes care of, or is up to the "sponsor" of the
MeetUp, Lucid Imagination, to set up?

A projector will certainly be there.  Maybe Lucid has one we can bring?

I assume there will be one, but let me check.
