I was spec'ing out a new server this afternoon, and I saw an option for
an IPMI board. When I googled to find out what that was, I discovered
it's a management interface for server hardware, apparently offering
BIOS-level access to a server's hardware over a network.

There's also a GNU FreeIPMI project available at

It sounds like it would be an interesting topic for a BLU meeting. Has
anyone here used IPMI, and would they be willing to give a talk on it
or recommend a good speaker on the topic?
