G'day Gary, great bit of history there :) Although I think there is some
confusion as no-one is talking about moving the #linuxaus that is on
OFTC. I want to clarify things for LA readers out there though. There
are two channels claiming to be LA:

On Freenode, the official LA channel of #linux-aus

On OFTC, the older but un-official channel of #linuxaus

Subtle differences but these channels are worlds away as far as members,
spirit and behaviour goes. Having both #linux-aus and #linuxaus on OFTC
would be interesting but I can't see any problems off hand (although
that doesn't mean there won't be any).
