[Linux-aus] WordPress Melbourne Recording Equipment Grand

I think that making meeting recordings available is a very valuable thing
for preserving and distributing useful knowledge.

I think it might not work if there had to be a lot of equipment exchanges
between groups. Recording meetings has value outside of the user group,
presuming that recordings are made publicly available.

It looks like the venue is the York Butter Factory. Do they have any
ability to support recordings? What other Linux Australia supported groups
meet at YBF? If there are several, then perhaps the equipment could be
sponsored by LA but held at YBF for interested user groups. Perhaps YBF
would also be interested in providing recording as a service to groups
which meet there.
