First, let's get some things straight. Nobody's a member of linux.ie - it's
a domain name, and can't really have members. The domain name belongs to the
Irish Linux Users Group, which can, and does, have members. You. just like
anyone else who has subscribed to the mailing list, are a member of ILUG,
according to § 3 of the constitution of ILUG as reproduced below.
1. Full membership of the society shall be open to anyone who is
a resident of the island of Ireland who agrees to support the aims
of the Society
2. Associate membership shall be open to anyone who is not eligible
for full membership
3. Membership shall be obtained by either:
i. Subscribing to the ILUG Mailing List
ii. Registering with the Secretary of the Society.
There is currently no membership fee.
4. All members shall be bound by this constitution.
To put the lid on this, I can do no better than quote from the FAQ (also to
be found on the website) which paraphrases Donncha's answer
Why don't you have information on $whatever on your website?
Because nobody's written anything on it. The website is maintained by
volunteers so if you want to see something on it, don't complain about it to
other people, just go ahead and write it yourself.
A community like ILUG cannot exist if everyone takes the attitude "Someone
had better do something, but it won't be me".
Maintained by the ILUG website team. The aim of Linux.ie is to
support and help commercial and private users of Linux in Ireland. You can
display ILUG news in your own webpages, read backend
information to find out how. Networking services kindly provided by HEAnet, server kindly donated by
Dell. Linux is a trademark of Linus Torvalds,
used with permission. No penguins were harmed in the production or maintenance
of this highly praised website. Looking for the
