I just received a mail from IDG (the organizers of LinuxWorld) which I
suspect they're sending out to all kinds of opensource
people/organizations, and I was wondering if the PSF and/or local (Bay
Area) Pythonistas are interested in taking advantage of this
opportunity.  If we do, then I'll gladly volunteer some time and work,
but I'm not really the right kind of "organizing maven" to take
point-position on this.  So, any takers...?

Here's what IDG just mailed me:

LinuxWorld Conference & Expo is looking for exhibitors for the .org
Pavilion, our free-of-charge exhibit area for free software and open
source projects. We're looking for projects that produce great
software and can host an informative, helpful booth for our attendees.

This year, we will be hosting an "un-conference" theater area adjacent
to the pavilion. If you would like a larger venue for works in
progress, Q & A sessions, demonstrations, and media, it's there for
