Our initial advice had that even mentioning that legal issues were a
problem could be a problem. Subsquent advice has meant, after appropriate
modification of minutes, we can release minutes.

ASIC authorised the change of name of ACN 008 211 201 to 'Linux
Australia Pty Ltd'. Subsequently ACN 008 211 201 also changed its name
and ACN 106 131 971 and ACN 106 123 022 (Linux Australia Pty Ltd and
Linux Australia Holdings Pty Ltd, respectively) were also been registered.

IPAustralia received TradeMark registration 955420 from one of those
organisations (the TM applications lists ACN 008211201) and subsequently
we received a letter from a legal firm.

The rest I'll leave up to speculation for now.
