Cool. That'll prolly mean that the next meeting (which will be on the
25th, in TCD again) will have loads more stuff to give away!
Other things for the meeting on the 25th;
A constitution will have to be approved & signatories requsted. If
there is disagreement on wording etc. Whole phrases will be left out, to
be added later, when agreement is reached. The idea would be to make a
"basic" constitution that everyone agrees on, so that we can spend the
inherited IUUG money, raise our own, pay for venues (for example, it costs
£30 to keep the Hamilton building open on weekends for us) and maybe even
provide a framework to get the Irish Linux Distribution going again, and
even *distributed* this time.
Could someone post whoever has the "current" constitution to the
constitution mailing list, and we can get hacking on it ?
Discussion on keeping the title "Irish Linux User Group". I may be just
emotional, but RMS did sorta make me feel guilty for referring to "Linux"
all these years, when it was the GNU part that was really important. Also,
there is the fact that we are also (and could do more to try to be) a
forum for FreeBSD, HURD, OpenBSD etc. based OSes also. There is no point
in having a "Debian GNU HURD User Group" etc. I was thinking of something
like the "Irish GNU & Linux User Group", seeing as IGLUG isn't too hard to
pronounce...but BSD isn't GNU, or Linux. All very confusing.
