No, that is not the point, which is likely why you will never be able to
let this one go. The point is, does LA assising hosting LCA in NZ
contrivine its mantra to help the Australian Linux community. If you can
argue that it does, then you have a point. But I think that it is
readily apparent that an LCA in NZ, an LCA whose organisation is well
underway and shows no signs of being other than a success, will benifit
not only the New Zealand Linux community, but the Australian one too. Directly
through Australians attending the conference, and indirectly through
fostering greater interest in Linux in the region.
