What's the deal with mini-conf only registrations?
EducationaLinux 2004 is a conference whose goals are to promote the use of Linux and open source in the Australian education system. As such its audience is substantially different from the main conference although there is some overlap.
The IPv6 conference will be attractive to many different communities, not all of whom will be using open source software. Therefore the organisers only felt it fair that these different communities be allowed to participate in the IpV6 conference but not unwittingly take up spaces in Linux.Conf.Au 2004 to the detriment of the open source communities in Australia.
Open Source in Government 2004
This conference is aimed at many different classes of professionals working in or with the government. Some of these professionals may not choose to attend the Linux.Conf.Au 2004 (developer) conference but nonetheless still wish to participate in this mini-conf. To cater for these people we have created a "Open Source in Government" only registration.
I have a mini-conf only registration but now want to go to the main conference too...
