Consider me the 'liason' between the LUGs and Ubuntu-CA, with regards
to potentially sharing space at OSCON.

Handouts and warm bodies to represent the LUGs, answer questions, etc.
Pretty basic.

I hope to be there, as representative of both LUGOD and the Tux Paint
project in Tux4Kids.

I haven't though any about Open Source World.  I'd rather see the LUGs
at OSCON, since it'll be the first time for _any_ of us, since OSCON's
been far away (San Diego?, and Portland) in prior years.  Plus, I've
only got so many cycles to spend on this kind of stuff.  As I've mentioned
elsewhere, if someone ELSE wants to organize a LUG booth at this event,
that'd be great... I've got a 2yo at home, so I'm pretty exhausted as it is.

No surprise, they've been in the past.
