Hi Joseph,

What I can't tell is if you're describing the current state of affairs
or where you'd like to go.  My impression is that these education
sessions should be more current state of affairs with only a taste of
the future.  The education sessions are for people who have little-to-no
experience with OpenBMC already in order to make them more productive
