Loath as I am to get my 2 cents in, I feel that I am compelled to. I was given 
a print-out of the people who registered for the event, and I don't recall 
having your name there. Now, it could have been incompetence on the part of 
the DHIT guys who set up the registration system (for which I would be fully 
responsible for) but it could also be because you (and others) did not 
register. However, to *plainly* say that MAMPU *snubbed* the community is 
uncalled for. I, personally, take offense to that. And I'm just the machai.

Why, on God's green earth, would anyone have a dialogue on FOSS where they 
invite the community, then turn around and not tell 'em, and instead get 
non-FOSS people to come? I mean, stupid me, obviously because I bloody well

lists and everyone I could think of. Then, you don't have to register online. 
Email me. After which I'll send reminders periodically until the day of the 

I may yet not be able to get it organised (or even get myself organised enough 
to organise it), but I sure as hell am going to try.
