Linux Kernel Developers'
Netconf 2009

Netconf is the annual summit of the Linux network developers. This two day conference is invitation-only for the the main maintainers and developers of the Linux networking subsystem. It provides a rare opportunity for developers to meet face-to-face and discuss issues usually only discussed over email.
