I'm willing to work with someone on this. Stein Gjoen has been
providing a monthly article to LWN (on behalf of the LDP); perhaps
he can assist (Stein?) or provide us with contacts at LWN to work

We also wanted to try to post such an article to comp.os.linux.answers,
but we haven't been able to establish contact with the moderator of
the newsgroup (that was the last update I had heard on this issue).
