Not to put an undue burden on anyone, but I will admit I was curious
as well and have sent a recent email to that effect. I am happy to
contact the Open Source Technology Center at Novell and see about
scheduling their conference room for your LUG meetings.
I'm pretty sure if you need help setting up meetings and getting
presenters, UTOS can help in this regard. We have a plethora of good
local speakers who are willing to present in our Utah Open Source LUG
Tour. We were going to start this up in January/February time frame,
but it sounds like this might be a good time to get things back on
What do you guys think?
