Well, OK, but the next question is that is some form of panel of
outsiders still a useful feature?

Previous panels we've done have been:

* Device Drivers - Inputs from vendors trying to get code into the
kernel. I had feedback that this was reasonably useful; the
problem is that it tends to be composed of vendors already
making a big effort on the open source process and not the ones
(like graphics) who aren't.
* Customer Panel - inputs from various users deploying linux in
their enterprises. This did tend to degenerate quickly to a
list of requirements.

The one everyone seems to want is chipsets, so is this the one we want
to shoot for this year?
