Sorry, I'm on vacation this week.

Due to logistic issues with IDG, we've decided against holding a 10th
Anniversary Linux event as originally planned in conjunction with
LinuxWorld.  We're investigating other possibilities, including
bringing in several speakers from RedHat, but this event would be a
very scaled-back event held apart from LWE.

Please don't let our plans interfere in any way with anything else
anybody wants to do; I never meant to give the impression that we were
claiming the day as "ours".
