    Subject2nd REVISED AGENDA -- Re: Linux Wireless Mini-Summit -- Ottawa -- July 22, 2008
    I adjusted the times based on the schedule for lunch and coffee breaks
    from the OLS crew. I also adjusted the length of some slots, and
    move the BoF/Break-Out/BarCamp section before adjourning for dinner.

    I'm still looking for more/different topics and for people to
    explicitly claim the ones on the list...speak up!
