Thanks for your opinion David.
Here's my view...
Attending lugcomms meet is not compulsory - and we don't need everyone
to be there all of the time. The point of lugcomms is to foster
inter-lug communication. Both between lugs, and with Linux Australia.
The mailing list exists - and has existed for some years.
It would seem that the synchronous IRC meeting has already generated
greater cross-communication and awareness of other lugs. That is its
purpose, so I don't agree at all that it is pointless.
The meetings themselves have a loose agenda, and anyone can contribute
topics towards it. The 'incorporation' topic was originally raised by
you, and I added it for discussion even though many others have been
over that ground many times before.
Do others think the IRC meetings are pointless?
