Hence my suggestion that an organisation exist, to cater for UNIX people 
in Australia, and, an organisation exist, to cater for Open Source 
Software people in Australia, and, that an organisation exist, that 
caters for Linux people in Australia, and that that organisation be 
affiliated to the former two organisations.

Perhaps, the third organisation mentioned above, could even be something 
like FALUG - the Federation of Australian Linux User Groups.
