*** We are all Linux Australia. *** The committee has the responsibility of
keeping the organisation viable, in control, acceptable to members, yada
yada yada. As a member - and in Linux Australia's case, even as a general
participant in the Australian Linux and Free Software community - you have a
stake in the organisation's operation and future.

If you haven't executed that opportunity/responsibility, tough biscuits! If,
however, the committee has obstructed our ability to contribute, then that's
an entirely different story, and we, as members, would have to rectify it.

    claim it still doesn't, but it filled a void where a simple tool to
            perform a simple task was needed." - Rasmus Lerdorf
