The deadline for LUG submission is already closed (if we are talking about
a regular LUG presentation) and I am not sure LUG Program Committee can
squeeze one more talk in, but I will try and ask.
On the other hand, if you want to present at OpenSFS Benchmarking
Workgroup meeting on Sunday April 22nd at LUG (not a regular talk) for 5
mins, I think Richard and I can arrange that one.
Please let me know what your preference is.
