[Linux-aus] Acknowledgement of country

Hey all,

I'm just going to reply to the original email/question as put forward.

My opinion, and not necessarily that of the council's, is that this is a
call for the organisers or the individual events to decide what is
appropriate. I think Clinton's response speaks well to that.

Should the members wish to discuss this further then I would encourage
the use of the policies mailing list
http://lists.linux.org.au/mailman/listinfo/policies as Luke pointed out.
It was set up for this purpose. From the discussion it would then be
helpful to submit a pull request to
https://github.com/linuxaustralia/constitution_and_policies with a
proposed policy. At that point the council will be able to deliberate on
it and move an appropriate motion.

I think we should have a policy that all LA events held in Australia should start with an Acknowledgement of Country or Welcome to Country. Also events in other countries such as NZ should show respect to indigenous people in an appropriate manner.
