+Helping out here is easy, whether you are a coder or not.
+
+# Keeping the events relevant (no coding required)
+
+Take a look at http://comdev1-us-west.apache.org/events/, this is an
+application we use to gather information for
+http://www.apache.org/events/meetups.html
+
+It's an automated process that will result in false positives at
+times. To remove the false positives we can do two things:
+
+  1) Mark a specific event as "not applicable" - which removes this
+     one event from the list
+  2) Mark an organizing group as "not applicable" - which
+     prevents any future events organized by the same group appearing
+
+To help with this process all we need is people to visit the page
+periodically and click the appropriate link on the right hand side.
+The more people we have doing this the easier it is for all of us.
+
+# Events Lists Outside the USA
+
+If you want to see better visibility of events outside the USA then
+you will need to take ownership of an instance of this application
+that collects events for your region. If meetup.com is commonly used
+in your region then there is no coded needed, just setup and
+maintenance of the application (see
+http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/comdev/tools (hopefully what you need
+to get started is in readme.md). We can then incorporate the curated
+events list in our calendar.
+
+If your region doesn't use meetup.com then we need you'll first need
+to find a provider of the information and integrate it into our
+tool. See the next session.
+
+# Improving the application
+
+If you'd like to work with the code you can find it at
+http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/comdev/tools (hopefully what you need
+to get started is in readme.md.
+
+Any feature that adds value is welcome. You can discuss feature
+additions and implemetation on the dev@community.apache.org mailing
+list (join with dev-subscribe@community.apache.org).
