SubjectRe: Linux Wireless Mini-Summit -- Ottawa -- July 22, 2008
Hello,
Linux wireless is, without any doubt, a very important subject.
Many people show interest in it.

It is good to hear that the third Linux Wireless mini-summit will
occur at OLS, which will give opportunity to many people (which some
of them don't know much about linux wireless) to attend it (whereas
the two last wireless mini-summits were not part of OLS, as far as I
know).

I want to add that It would be great if part of it (or hopefully, all
of it) will be videoed and put on the web. I am sure that many
(including me) will be glad to watch it. I am sure that making an
effort like this is important and is of interest for the linux
wireless community.

Regards,
Mark Ryden
