If I actually had the time... I would love to do it. As it is, I'm sure
I would do a hack job the night before :-)
Still, if no one steps up (an unlikely prospect) I'll be glad to do it.
This would make a great project for one of our younger members. It might
even make a great paper for extra-credit (for one of our NCSU members).
If someone wants experience in giving a talk, but feels a bit too
nervous, then I would be glad to donate a few nights to help that person
out - and help them with a few practice runs. This is an ideal topic for
a person of moderate linux skills who wants to learn more and contribute
something back to the community... and gain some experience in giving
presentations to nerd herds.
