whoa ppl, think this through a bit before you go galloping off to change 
the world.

do we have a common understanding of FOSS or FLOSS or linux or all three 
and the dozens of other words used to describe open source and/or open 
standard non-proprietary systems and programs?

does anyone other than the most dedicated enthusiast of matters open 
source appreciate any of it?

Just who would be looking for foss.au ... and why would they?

Is there a purpose in being identified as f/loss and what is it?

Who would use it?

... just some thought starters.
