Personally, I think Linux Australia would and should be happy to provide
any support that's needed or wanted for any or all of these goals. Last
I saw, in addition to LA, UNSW was being considered as host for all the
Lions Chair stuff, and UNSW and individual members were being considered
as hosts for historical AUUG stuff (and maintaining the auug.org.au domain
and lists). 

I've been figuring who does which of those was AUUG's call to make,
but personally I think it'd be great for LA to be involved.
