Just a reminder that the next meeting of SVLUG is Wednesday, 2 
January. If you're reading this at work, that probably means 
*tonight*. :)

This is my last act in the position of SVLUG Speaker coordinator, a 
job I took on in December 2000. I'd like to thank the entire staff 
and membership of SVLUG for the opportunity to help bring you some 
excellent speakers: Your suggestions and support have been invaluable.

As of this meeting, Steve Traugott will be taking up the job of 
Speaker Coordinator. (Yes, he's also this month's speaker: What 
better way to familiarize himself with the job? :) ) As before, 
please contact him via the speakers at svlug.org mailbox with proposals 
and comments.

Now, on with the show...

    Automating Linux Infrastructures

    Wednesday, 2 January 2002, 7pm-9pm or so.

    Steve Traugott
    Founder, Infrastructures.Org
    Managing Partner, TerraLuna, LLC

    Steve Traugott is a pioneer in the area of automated administration
    of clusters and enterprise systems; his "Bootstrapping an
    Infrastructure" paper at the 1998 LISA conference helped lay the
    groundwork.  Steve will cover the concepts and terminology of
    automated systems administration -- why automate, what components
    you need, the role of gold servers, CVS, LDAP, kickstart, makefiles
    that run at boot, tools like cfengine, file replication, and
    related subjects.  He'll also talk about technologies like
    ARK/Arusha, ISconf and others on the horizon.

    Cisco Building 9.
