[ snip other bits ]

I try very hard not to be a source of negative energy on this list. However
(you knew that was coming), this all sounds a bit grandiose and out of scope
for Linux Australia. 'Simple, casual and commitment-free' has kept SLUG out
of silly ventures for a long time - perhaps that tenet could be applied
here. :-)

(The idea is worthwhile, but it doesn't seem like the kind of thing LA
should get involved with.)
