You've made your point, a number of times, and I suspect that the vast 
majority of those who have read them all, understand your concern.

This is however, quite an old issue. As previously mentioned, it's been 
in active discussion, beyond the LCA committee & lists even, since LCA 
Adelaide - the beginning of 2004.

In a few superficial ways it may look odd - it *does* look odd, but it 
is *not* odd. It's not a whim. It's not a mistake.

The Kiwi's who have made a decent effort to attend all the Australian 
linux.conf's will do a fine job, and after having done one, they'll be 
much more reluctant to ask for another.

There is far more to be gained than lost by having an LCA 2006 in Dunedin.

Now please, back away from that horse corpse, it's beginning to rot.
