Why should the www.cork.linux.ie site not host more general information. the
way I see is that there is very little information on Linux on the
www.linux.ie site itself. Apart from links and a BGTL there is very little.
Of course I know there wouldn't be any point in sending technical questions
to the Cork list, that is just for informing people of meetings and stuff.
I also agree that there should be an installfest in Cork some time after the
Summer, hopefully in the CIT.
