SETR: I like "Open Source Australia", but I think just as linux.conf.au is
about more than "Linux" these days, Linux Australia can also be about more
than just Linux these days.  If OSA is a better way to get other interest
groups (e.g. the former AUUG) to meet under a shared banner, then so be it.
