[LGM] If anyone's interested in a libre graphics day at LCA in New Zealand...

...now's the time.

I realize this is short notice, but what can you do.  Linux.conf.au (LCA)
has its call for papers open for just a couple more days:

The event itself is January 21 to 25, 2019.

In addition to the regular session submissions, though, people can propose
one-day 'miniconfs' for addition to the schedule. Approved miniconf
organizers are then responsible for putting together their own program.
They are typically single-topic-focused events, and holding one on libre
graphics would certainly be a great opportunity for the LG community to
engage with a totally different audience than the one that habitually
frequents LGM itself.

Several folks on this list have put together similar libre-graphics-day
tracks at other local, community events in the past, most recently at SCALE
in Los Angeles, and they're always enthusiastic and interesting. So if
anybody is in the Australia / New Zaeland region (or likes going there),
and feels like giving it a shot, this is the chance.

Please note that I'm not volunteering to do that: it really would need
somebody who's either in the area or is already 100% sure that they'll be
at LCA. I've been a couple of times in years past and it's a great
community, but it's quite a trip for a lot of us on certain other

Anyway, just tossing that out there. I don't think you'd have to have
anything close to a complete plan in place (like what speakers/sessions
you'd have); this is just the deadline for proposing a miniconf in general.
