The original message said "We also don't intend to relinquish the Linux 
Australia brand".  It seems to me that the aim is to transition to a new 
parent body that oversees an organisation called "Linux Australia" which is 
focussed on Linux as well as other computing liberty organisations.

I'm thinking of something like the way SLUG became a LA sub-committee.  They 
still do all the SLUG stuff and call themself SLUG.  People who aren't really 
involved in the Linux world in Australia wouldn't even know the difference.
