I think that _any_ Ada job announcements are "Fair Game" for posting in
conspicuous places. Maybe the Booth could provide/maintain a list/lists
of similar openings worldwide (why restrict it?).  This information
alone is a powerful shot in the arm for Ada, and a shot in the head for
the nay-sayers (or "Ada is dead" sayers).
