	Note that I have submitted an invited talk proposal for this 
conference, and while I haven't heard the official word yet, I have 
gotten some initial feedback that they are positively inclined 
towards accepting.

	Under normal circumstances, I would be fine with also doing a 
tutorial on a related package (such as Mailman), but I'm also in the 
process of writing a book, I think I'm about to accept a propsal from 
Rob Kolstad to start writing a column for _;login:_ magazine (the 
official publication of the USENIX Association), and my wife and I 
are preparing to move back to the US this year.  Given the short 
fuse, I don't think I could do it this time.

	Now, if someone else has already developed Mailman tutorial 
material, I'd be happy to be the one to present that.

	I got contacted back in December about doing an invited talk 
proposal for this conference.  While I did give them a number of 
other names of people that I thought might be interested/willing/able 
to give an invited talk at this conference, I didn't think about 
anyone related to Mailman.

	For that, I am deeply sorry.  I should have thought of you folks 
and given you much more warning.
