So, at least for February 2002, you can add

	2. linux.conf.au (Brisbane, Australia)

to that list. Talks and BOFs about Debian are more than welcome anyway,
but if we get enough of them to make a "sub conference" we can definitely
make special arrangements to have them all held in a separate room or
a day before the conference to make things a little more cosy/focussed.

For foreigners, Brisbane's on the east coast of Australia, about an
hour's flying time north of Sydney.

Anyway, the website's http://www.linux.org.au/conf/ and abstract
submissions are due *real* soon now. :) Any .au, .nz, .jp, or .*
developers who want to come on over and give a talk (or just listen to a
few; although registrations don't open for a little while yet) are more
than welcome. We have some limited funds to help get interesting speakers
over here and to get them shacked up (of course, anyone who'd like to help
footing that bill is more than welcome to talk to the organising ctte too)

(LCA moves around Australia (it was in Melbourne in '99 as CALU, and in
Sydney this year) which means it gets organised by different people each
time; I'm sure that whoever ends up organising the next one'll be more
than happy to have hosts of Debian developers descend upon them though)

Cheers,
aj (for the LCA '02 organising ctte)
