Linux Australia has never provided any direct services to LinuxSA
regardless of who happens to be the "benevolent dictator" at the time;
that said Linux Australia have, in the past, agreed to host both the
web-site and be custodians of LinuxSA's domain name (linuxsa.org.au) so
we could agree that the potential to help a local user group in SA is

I haven't shifted the services over to Linux Australia simply because of
laziness more than anything else.

It's not clear what services Linux Australia could provide LinuxSA apart
from public liability coverage; in the past any activities I would be
involved in would be covered under AUUG's public liability (because they
were actually easier to deal with) however there's nothing that LinuxSA
does now that really needs any "special" coverage. If you slip over on a
banana peel at Marcellina's then realistically it's Marcellina's issue -
not LinuxSA's.
