Without making up UCC policy on the fly:

Pending all rules pertaining to Aarnet network policy and realising that
the UCC's access to the internet is, for want of a better word, shit
(with only 20% of the world considered free traffic, the rest of which
we foot the bill for). I don't see why it wouldn't be possible to have
developer accounts available on manbo.

I can talk it over with the rest of the committee. I'm sure we can set
something up.

Jeff, as we have just discussed, if you want to approach Sun from LA or
GNOME, on behalf of the UCC, that would be fine. You seem to have
contacts there.

Kind Regards,
