If we can make them FUDCon-in-a-box, then I think they are ideal to set
up in a reasonable number of locations.  The LWCE hubs are generically
attractive to Linux enthusiasts.

If it is put together piecemeal on entirely volunteer labor with
borrowed materials, uh, hmm ...

Hmmm ...

How were the first FUDCons in this regard?  Did we engage with any event
support services?  Random student labor?

I'll co-lead a two-stage effort:

1. Research and decide feasability of doing FUDCon3 in August - one week

2. Proceed, if feasible

I note, with some interest, that the Fedora Foundation is intended for
completion by mid-August.  I smell a convergence of events.

I just don't want to be renting a U-Haul to bring rental chairs in from
Oakland, thank you very much. :)
