As organizer of the panel at UseNIX, 
I want to thank Judy Grass for asking
(for the post on the patent issue before
Congress) and Michael R. Miller for replying.

I would be interested in commentary on whether
a controlled amount of similar material of
this form is warranted on this newsgroup,
and if future UseNIX meetings would profit
from further discussions on this topic.
Any suggestions may be sent to me directly,
and/or posted for discussion as seems appropriate.

Thank you for your attention.
