Love to, timing is important though, I can shift my work day more easily than
evening meetings with people who are locked into 9-5.

A lot of people don't know how to compile a kernel (and many shouldn't)
so some examples of getting the unused features out to reduce build time
would be useful. Also how to apply patches.
How to create and maintain a local repository would be useful.
Syslog - use of central syslog servers, and writing logs to pipes so
other programs can watch them in real time.

Weekday afternoons in NY time are good for me, AM is doable.
