The argument seems to be if the archive is restricted to other regular
users, i.e. other subscribers, then people searching the web for linux
info won't find the copy in the ILUG archives.
Personally, I don't see this as a problem, since I can't recall
reading anything here that was of interest to the global Linux user
base, but was not published anywhere else, i.e. there have been a
couple of scripts originated by ILUG members discussed, which were
then published seperately (install-sendmail, or Lars'
postfix+amavis-perl stuff), similarly there have been things like
Irish Linux jobs offered, or local exhibitions discussed, which would
IMHO not be of interest to the world at large.
