It's a good question Troy and possibly particularly tempting with OSIA's recent
woes, from which I'm sure they'll pull through.

However, with Linux Australia being about community people and OSIA being about
business community, there should be a place for both to thrive independently
and together when appropriate as I believe the there is space for both, with
differing priorities but over lapping interests.

IMHO without both thriving, we're not succeeding as a broader community.

That's my 2c at least :-)
