Has anyone filled up the August meeting talk spots?

I can offer a few insights into the National Archives' approach to Digital 
Preservation if there's any interest. Our three principal pieces of software 
are open sourced and hosted on sourceforge. We have recently completed the 
design, construction and fitout of a prototype digital repository facility. I 
built all the systems in this, so I know the guts of it pretty well.

With the systems hardware pretty stable now, I have been plonked into the 
application development sphere where I'm apparently in charge of our 
preservation software development.

We use java for cross platformness among other things and OpenOffice is a key 
part of the picture. 

It's not all Linux, but there's an important Linux facet and it's all open 

Is anyone interested?
