I call on those objecting to a name change to go and create their own
org and do as they wish.  They can call it Linux Australis, or Linus
Aurealis, or Linus Down under.

See, it kind of works both ways doesn't it.

As I said, if you had read my e-mail, LA has the perception of being
more Admin than about Linux promotion and advocacy.  A name change is
good, as then LA becomes "Umbrella Administrative Organisation" \,
leaving Linux Australia to be about promoting and advocating Linux.

Why is this concept so hard for people to grasp?

No one is hijacking Linux Australia.   Just formalising and
re-arranging the organisational structure as it currently exists.
Linux Australia will still be there, with people to advocate and
promote Linux, as it should be.

Then again, there will always be people who object to change just for
the sake that it is change.
