Note: I haven't suggested mergers or changing (or 'undoing') the focus of
our organistion and conference. We have an Open Source organisation that
should be named so: Linux Australia. We have a conference advertised as
something that it is not: linux.conf.au. We definitely *could* do with a
Free Culture focused group. Much like OSIA, that would be an excellent and
worthwhile association for us.

Everyone's scared about changing the organisation, but that wasn't part of
the proposal.
