Plain Text


  • Ops in #ubuntu-au

    • Reminder has been given for the Digital Rights Petition. Please get signatures from your School/TAFE/University, Workplace, LUG, or camp out at a shopping center and collect as many signatures as possible. See http://linux.org.au/law for more information.

  • Notice of IRC meetings to the list
    • It has been decided that each fortnight, the person who chairs the meeting will (within 24 hours) email a summary of the meeting to the mailing list. This person will also be responsible for sending a reminder to the list roughly 2 days prior to the next meeting (the Sunday before).
