[Linux-aus] linux.conf.au in January

I would like to suggest that linux.conf.au's previously traditional January
date be documented  as an important convention or tradition  that we
should only deviate from in exceptional circumstances .
It's important to have a consistent timeframe for a conference (cf. OSCON,
LWE, OLS, most other major conferences in any industry), and Australia in
January has been a great drawcard for our international audience in previous
I brought this up at the AGM during the New Zealand  discussion, but it
is more appropriate for discussion here.
 On the website project page, or in the forthcoming linux.conf.au docs
that have been mentioned a couple of times.
 Not saying "policy" because it was negatively interpreted as "law".
 Despite the lca2005 team doing a superb job, I don't consider "Canberra
is hot in January" as an exceptional circumstance. :-)
 Congratulations, eh bro!
