Wouldn’t Linux Australia, as an established organisation, be better  
suited to do this (whatever it actually ends up being) for Australia’s  
LUGs? In the time (not to mention money and effort) required to launch  
the Council of LUGs off the ground could not Linux Australia provide  
what is necessary? I just don't see why resources and time should be  
spent to launch an organisation that practically already exists and  
could just as well merge from Linux Australia (a sub group per se).

Maybe I’m just missing the point. :)
