Should be current-users... I've fixed that :-)

When we attempted to schedule a BoF session, we were told by the USENIX
people that it wasn't necessary since we already have a 1.5 hour presentation
at the FREENIX track... then when we looked at what BoF time slices were
left available, we punted on the "informal BoF" thing, assuming that folks
would rather be out enjoying New Orleans :-)

So, if you're interested in hearing NetBSD topics at USENIX, here are
sessions you can attend:

	Wednesday, 11am, FREENIX track - A Machine-Independent DMA
	Framework for NetBSD

	Wednesday, 2pm, FREENIX track - The NetBSD Operating System

Both are being presented by me.  At the NetBSD session, I'll be presenting
a set of slides that provice an introduction to NetBSD (for those who don't
already know about us), and describe some of our current projects and future
directions, and then take questions.  So, all you NetBSD'ers out there should
come to this!  Let's pack the room!  :-)

Watch netbsd-announce - I'll be posting a message there today about USENIX
presentations that will or may have NetBSD-related material.
