Later today I'll be heading off towards Montreal for netconf 2005. I'm really looking forward to that event and the interesting discussions with my fellow Linux networking developers.
I'm actually meeting Patrick McHardy in Paris, as we'll be on the same transatlantic flight. I hope we can get some of the pending netfilter/iptables issues discussion meanwhile ;)
After netconf, most of us are heading to Ottawa for Kernel Summit and OLS. I've turned down the invitation to the kernel summit, since usually there is nothing on the agenda that even remotely touches the packet filter or even the core network stack, so I'd rather make space for somebody else.
I'm supposed to have network connectivity almost all the time, so I don't expect big delays in email responses.
