    I am looking for #Apache #httpd podcasts. It's pretty boring technology these days I guess, so I don't expect a lot of them.

    We are still looking for a few judges for the CC Community Music Awards. Thanks to everyone who has reposted the previous calls for help!

    1. #CentralAmerica, & #Caribbean (minus PR)
    2. #Africa
    3. #Pacific (including #Australia)
    4. #SouthAmerica

    Judges are responsible for presenting 5 nominees from the region for a vote. You do not need to live in the region to judge the region (though I do think that is ideal)

    If you would like to be a 2021 (the award are announced in 2021, but the entry year will be 2020) regional judge for the CC Community Music Awards, get at me.

    These are the current regions where we need people:
    #GreatLakes (#IL, #IN, #MI, #OH)
    #Midwest (#IA, #KS, #MN, #MO, #NE, #ND, #SD, #WI)
    #South (#AL, #AR, Commonwealth of #PuertoRico, #FL, #LA, #MS)
    #Southeast (#GA, #KY, #NC, #SC, #TN, #WV)
    #Southwest (#AZ, #CO, #NM, #OK, #TX, #UT)
    #West (#CA, #HI, #NV)
    #Canada, #CentralAmerica, and #Caribbean (other than #PR)
    #Europe
    #Africa
    #Pacific (including #Australia)
    #SouthAmerica

    Please feel free to translate this post into whatever language would be useful for finding people in the region, but please note that I speak only English, so it will be difficult for me to coordinate with someone that does not speak at least some English.

    If some wants to step up and be a coordinator for Spanish or some other language, we would love the help.

    I am going to try to keep up with this as a dailyish post until I accounted for all of the regions.

    The team that supports this stuff is hiring, if you are looking. I am moving to this team. This is our Gold level of support. We also have silver and bronze level support, but I am not going to focus on learning that stuff. Of course, I already know a bit about some (most?) of these.
