A LoCo Resolution?

Well, support is normally part of an Installfest, but perhaps that needs
to be better advertised.  I'd like to organize one for Ubuntu 10.04 LTS,
and make concerted efforts to "squash annoyances", and report any bugs
that are found during the event.  I'd like to have some small informal
"howto" sessions as well.

While I sympathize with the drive time for you, I think if we define
"central" as "minimizing the average drive time of participants", we'd
find ourselves back in Atlanta.  It's worth investigating though.
