The LinuxWorld Expo [ http://www.linuxworldexpo.com/index.html ]  will be in
San Jose from August 14-17th.  They have a specific track on Languages.
Can the ARA support a booth, track event and/or BOF session on Ada 95
Languages and Technologies?  I'd be glad to assist.

We are missing a great place to show off what Ada can do under Linux.
