I suspect the proposed TasLUG subcommittee would be very interested in 
such a project, even if just for our own selfish needs.

Currently, we're holding two meetings a month - one in Hobart and one in 
Launceston. Co-ordinating streaming between the two meetings without 
having the meeting organiser getting overloaded, and having consistent 
URLs and methods, etc. is proving to be tricky. If there were some 
'standardised' LA setup, whether just protocols involved, backend 
platform provided by LA or even some grant $ for provisioning of some 
equipment (eg travel cases), I think it would benefit the group greatly.

Thinking a bit further along, it'd be a great for local LUGs to iron out 
bugs, etc., before the big conferences come along. Also, each LUG - 
whether by adhering to protocols, using the backend or the granted 
equipment, may be able to take the kit out into 'the wild' and thus help 
spread the FLOSS word amongst groups who may be interested (eg, CC 
inclined artists)

Just some random thoughts. But this does sound like a great idea Tim.
