Guys, I do not think a panel is the right approach.  I think we should start
having weekly telecons and agree on a single presentation to use at events
like this.

Hi Gerry,
I am planning (so far) to attend both, and would like to coordinate with you
on the presentation’s content.  I might be able to assist in presenting,
Was Ric from Redhat going to provide us a slot in a device working session
for Scotland?

Gerry Houlder (Seagate) disclosed plans to make an SMR presentation at Linux
Plumbers Conference (Sept. 18-20, New Orleans) and LinuxCon Europe (Oct.
21-23, Scotland). The intend is to use information from the 3 presentations

After the webex time completed, WD shows a live demo of a Linux host with two
drives that implement the interface recommended in their presentation. One
drive was a single zone and the other drive was a multi-zone configuration.
