Before Linux Australia committed to anything like this, I'd like to see
how the LCA2005 / AUUG OSS in Government conference tango worked out.  I
have no reason to believe that it won't be a resounding success.

Linux.Conf.Au 2004 was a negative data point on the Linux Australia / AUUG
relationship (with the OSS in Government miniconf), so I'd like to see if
both sides are happy with the result of this year's venture before we go
any further on things for future years.

For proposed long-term co-operation like this it may be worthwhile both
organisations providing an opportunity for their memberships to comment
privately on the issue (so that both organisations can represent the
wishes of its members).

Hope this helps,
