The folks working on suse's rpm at the lsb packaging meeting were very
cool and worth talking to. We had similar problems and, if nothing else,
commiserated well and laughed about user requests. Ditto with the Ubuntu
people there.

more importantly, we're not negotiating over nuclear weapons, here. It's
just to talk about whatever and maybe to meet some people. If we go and
absolutely nothing beneficial happens we are out absolutely nothing
beside a little bit of time.
