I would gladly participate as a panelist.

My purpose when submitting a BoF was to get people to discuss, share and
find ways we could work together in a relaxed manner.

My personal experience is that panel session are somehow intimidating.

I think the BoF could be useful if it happens after the panel.

I'm ready to discuss this with you, Benn and other representatives or
key people from other projects in the Apereo community.

We still have time before the conference to get members of the Apereo
community that are involved in i18n to start discussing how we could
work together.

Maybe starting an Apereo i18n mailing list would help.
