Interesting things to ask them about:

Why has the independent panel been delayed?  Have any of the
independent experts who will see source code been chosen, and if
so who are they and what are their qualifications?

SCO has already said it will remove the "Letter from Linux Customers"
from its web site in response to a complaint from Linuxtag.  Is SCO
doing anything else to address this complaint?

Is SCO's license to Novell's Unix copyrights and patents an exclusive
one, or is Novell still free to license these to others?

Since SCO continues to distribute Linux source code under GPL
through its update service, will it take any legal action against
subscribers to that service who exercise their rights under the GPL?
