Your endorsement isn't any less in my view because of Canonical --
others may disagree, but developers who actually use things don't tend
to stretch the truth about their tools. In general, techs tend to be
more honest and nuanced about what they use and what they like --
marketroids (people who pitch stuff they don't use personally), don't
give off the same vibe when they are talking about a technical matter.

That would be great -- we'd even make room for you to talk if have
something you would like to present. You could even show off Bzr,
maybe get canonical to comp you the time<g>. During the summer, the
meetings are much smaller. In fact, with the last meeting so close to
the Holiday -- I ended up being the only one there. (First time that
has happened.) It was my fault, the meeting sneaked up on me and
there wasn't enough time to change the date -- live and learn<g>
