Hi all,

Thank you for the kind words! I enjoyed running OWOOT and before that
Aussiechix and Sydney LinuxChix, and met many great women through them.

For people wondering what happened to OWOOT, we decided in May that there
wasn't enough interest or activity to sustain that particular group. The final
mail I sent is copied below.


Subject: [OWOOT] Closing OWOOT: final email

Hi everyone,

After this email, I will ask the Linux Australia sysadmins to close down this
email list and the owoot.org website. Thanks to everyone for being part of
OWOOT, and of previous groups (AussieChix, NZ Linuxchix, Linuxchix Sydney,
Linuxchix Melbourne).

For people seeking alternative communities, here's some possibilities:


Yearly miniconference for women at linux.conf.au
