[Linux-aus] Representation

Hi all,

Firstly, let's move on from the hostility shown on this list, ok?  It really 
doesn't help anyone, and Linux Australia won't become an important entity 
unless we pull together. 'nuff said.

Secondly, I'd like to explore alternate representation ideas for the Linux 
Australia committee.  Talking to people after the AGM it was clear that a 
significant number of people would have liked to see a representative from each 
Australian state - irrespective of this not being a requirement or goal in the 
current constitution.  

I think that having representatives from every state will make the job of 
running Linux Australia _harder_, not easier.  However if people think they are 
well represented, it will help us pull together as an organisation, and on that 
basis alone I think it's worth serious consideration.

Having said all that though, I believe the new president and committee will do 
an excellent job - they have my full-support.  Go Linux Australia!

And to start with, to show our unity, everyone now has to commit to coming to 
Adelaide next January for linux.conf.au 2004 :)
