The second of these is what I'm mostly going with.  The outline is
here, anyone feel free to edit it or add things which you like and
think would be good to talk about.  Don't worry about adding things
and making it disorganized, I will organize before I write it all up.

Right now the main topics are:
- Policy
- Packaging Basics (suites, medium-advanced usage of dpkg and apt)
- Advanced tricks
- Brief look at source packages

I think the outline is too much to talk about right now, but: go ahead
and add your other ideas to it (or mail the list).  I will select what
gets in the final presentation based on what there is...

Who think they can come to the talk (to serve as backup for

Brian/Ron/NYLUG - I'll get a talk description to you ASAP.
