    • This will be voted on at the next Council meeting.

4. Items for noting

  • NetThing Sponsorship. Following the last LA Council meeting some final details were received from NetThing about Linux Australia’s proposed sponsorship.  Joel consequently raised a motion on list on 24 Aug 2022:
    That Linux Australia will sponsor NetThing 2022 for Captioning and Signing services to the value of $3000.
    The motion was carried.
  • Russell has suggested that proposed sponsorships be announced on the Grants list to provide another way for the membership to stay up to date about the activities of Linux Australia. This seems to be a reasonable idea. It will be done for all sponsorship requests received from now.

5. Other business

  • No other business was raised.
