Eurgh. The policy sounds good for a one-off conference, but for LCA, it
happens every year. Not only that, but linux.conf.au appears to be the
only user of the domain:


Having a policy in place for just one user seems to be a little
wasteful. I don't have much faith in bureaucracy, but is it possible to
get them to change the policy?

I had a long reply written to this e-mail, but I scrapped it, as I can't
really think of anything worth saying. Perhaps it would be worth CC'ing
kre at munnari.oz.au, the administrator of conf.au.
