quite a number of you thinking quite seriously about the process. Please make

document. Use the time to start conversations and put together a vision for

The first thing to to do is to send an email to council at
You should CC linux-aus at so that the rest of the community
is aware you are thinking of preparing a bid. Hopefully this will
encourage other people in your area to help you out.

The first outlines what is required for the bid process, while the
second give a fairly detailed overview of the sorts of things you need

need to prepare a high quality bid.

Happy bidding!!

P.S. Please forward this announcement onto local LUG lists and anywhere else
