looking for Open Source project presentations

Hello OpenLDAP developers,

My name is Eric Ayers and I am writing to invite you to submit a paper 
to the Atlanta Linux Showcase Conference sponsored by USENIX.  The
conference will be held in October, and we are looking for abstracts
for paper submissions by May 1.

At the last Use Linux committee meeting we were discussing open source 
projects that we'd like to see papers from, and OpenLDAP was one of
particular interest, as we are looking for submissions concerning
network services and platform interoperability.  We would be
interested in papers by those invovled in development as well as from
those who have deployed the server and have experience with LDAP
servers in general. Of course, the showcase is focused around Linux in 
particular, and we would like to see a tie-in to the Linux operating

I see that the project is (or was)sponsored by netboolean and you have 
a lot of developers listed on your web page.  We also are
looking for projects that might benefit from a "development hothouse."
This is where we provide accomidations, a room with lots of computers,
catered food, and no outside distractions for 3 days to 1 week.  If
yours is a distributed development staff and a well organized project
that you think would benefit from this type of environment where we
could bring several of your developers together, let us know.  We did
this last year with XFree86 and it was a big success - they are coming 
back.  This year the Red Hat foundation is sponsoring us, so we have
room for 3 more projects. 

The call for papers and more information about the showcase can be
found at:


If you are interested and have any questions, please feel free to
write or give me a call 

Also, would you mind if I posted a similar announcement to
the openldap-general list, as we are looking for deployments as well.
