The Linux Australia Council held a special vote on this matter tonight,
and have agreed to fund Robin's application for travel funding for
FOMS/LCA, SLUG and LUV as a one-off grant to a total value of $2000.
The biggest factor in this decision was the contributions Robin's
presentations at SLUG and LUV would provide to the Sydney and Melbourne
linux communities, as well the follow-on effect from his attendance at
FOMS and LCA.
