FWIW, I think LA's goal is (and should be) to be able to do both things;
I think LA would be a great success if it was acting both as the financial
umbrella for l.c.a each year and was promoting a purely PHB-oriented
Linux tradeshow (or roadshow).

I don't think LA's involvement in l.c.a is anywhere near so tight as
to mean LA can't do the same job for folks interested in Linux in a
completely different way to your average l.c.a attendee.

Which is to say, broadening the base is a great idea (and having a
separate committee probably is too), but hopefully those newbies can be
welcomed into LA.
