Clarification- "linux developer" conference.  Linux
kernel/driver/application/whatever developers can go to lca*, linux
users, small time sys admins, dba's gimp users etc can go to calu or
whatever you want to call it.  

Maybe we could even hold it in NZ every few years <grin>

*At least, that is the way I think it should be focused, you can go
wherever you like...
