| Thank you both for your ideas, enthusiasm, and support!

If we are able to arrange something like that then that would benefit
a lot of folks. The response on the SVLUG general mailing list is
enthusiastic too.

However, this is at a much bigger scale than the SVLUG monthly meeting.
A 2 hour session per month, running over months won't match the intensity
of a course work like study sessions. Besides there are other challenges

* finding 1 or more experts willing to provide that kind of time
* facilities etc.

It's an ambitious goal.
Any further ideas / suggestions are welcome.
