[BALUG-Admin] "BALUG"(+) booth at LinuxWorld

We'd likely have a spot for a person or two at the shared booth,
but not necessarily all hours of each day, or necessarily even for
a full day - it may very much depend on how many groups are interested
and how many folks volunteer to spend what times at the booth.

As the booth will be shared, I don't think we have any plans to hand the
booth effectively over to any single group exclusively for an entire
day.  But for the most part there will likely be space for a person
or two from each UG - probably much, but not necessarily all of the
time - and space for some literature and such, likely a smallish sign,
and perhaps for a small display of some type.

I'll likely set up a wiki page to aid in coordinating this (e.g.
what persons will volunteer to be in the booth what hours of
what days, etc.).  Watch the BALUG "admin" list
(Jim Stockford is also on that list)
for information about wiki page (I was planning to have that up a
bit earlier ... will likely have it up *real soon now*).
