1.4) Public Liability: Steve Walsh says:
1.4.1) Yes, LA provides PLI for SFD provided you receive a CD from LA
1.4.2) Email council at linux.org.au
       Subject: request for PLI for (lugname or town)
       Name of Organisation or Event
       Level of Coverage required
       Brief Description
       Contact Person: email + phone number
       Physical Address (for posting CD)
       URL (LUG, or event, or other relevant reference)

1.4.3) Certificate will follow
1.4.4) Linux Australia's PLI covers up to $10m. If your venue requires
more than that, make that very clear in the email.
