I can understand that. I'm one of the organizers behind ROSE[1], heading
towards our third Expo in Nov 2005. It takes a large team about a year
to make something like that work. My hats off to you ;-)

How feasible would it be to do a BSDCanWest "track" or "BoF"[2] at
another event (like ROSE)? Is BSDCan the sort of event where a minimal
portion of it could be considered "portable"?
