seamus bonner just sent the message at the end of this to the ilug
committee address. i think in reality it should go out to all of ilug.
in general the members of ilug are much more helpful and productive then
the much smaller number that make up the committee - in fact i'm quite
sure of it.
so from this mail i think people should draw the following:
if people point folks at ilug, ilug at linux.ie is the best address to
point them at. they'll find a wider audience there.
if people are in donegal it looks like there's an interesting and
worthwhile project you can contribute to.
for those of us who live in the middle of nowhere, we have some
small measure of hope.
i hope folks can help seamus - and perhaps we could even avoid the
distro war some people might be eager to start after reading his
message. you know, just for giggles...
