If what you know about ACS is 10 years old, then may I suggest you know
little of ACS today.
No you wouldn't have to be a member of the acs under the circumstances I
quoted (see the tsa article -
http://www.tsa.org.au/public/news_detail.asp?id=42), what AUUG would get
is the benefit of the national infrastructure, support, facilities and
other tangible and non tangible attributes of ACS.
What ACS might get is a broader understanding of the whole range of
software that is available instead of that which is promoted the most
vigorously in the marketplace.
A fair trade in my view ;)
