I think that question is answered at
https://linux.org.au/saying-farewell-to-planet-linux-australia/ as
referenced in the original email.

I read it as the cost of maintaining the feed outweighs the benefit in the
council's view.

That's a decision within the purview of the council and I think entirely

It's good of Russel to volunteer to run a replacement, and I applaud his
efforts, but that should be done without requiring the admin team to do
ongoing work to support it.
