Best practices for WordCamp forkers

In light of some recent WordCamp “forks”, Andrea Middleton has posted a draft of policies for people that are WordCamp organizers and decide to organize non-WordCamp affiliated conferences. This is a really good proactive approach in my opinion, and Andrea brings up some really good points that any past WordCamp organizer considering starting a non-WordCamp event should keep in mind. If you’re a WordCamp organizer, definitely read it and bring up other items that might be relevant.
