Hi Adam,

I think you're probably making a fair point. At least some of the
updates I've been sending have been minutiae that maybe is only of
interested those who have already made the decision to attend.

I included the Linux Australia list on my announcement-email
distribution list because I know our communities have significant overlap.

With your permission, I'd like to keep posting major announcements to
the Linux Australia list, but I'll exercise more discretion about items
that really aren't relevant unless you're definitely already coming.

For example, I might announce an event, but will be careful about
spamming the list with updates *about* that event. I hope that's a
middle ground that means information can still get conveyed without
driving people nuts with spam.
