  • Linux Australia Code of Conduct

    The organisers of LCA 2012 and its parent organization, Linux
    Australia, are sympathetic to concern from speakers and attendees
    about whether LCA 2012 will have an official code of conduct. The
    Linux Australia Council believe in the importance of making members
    feel welcome and safe at our events, and are committed to continuing
    to adopt an official code of conduct for all the conferences it runs
    as well as the Linux Australia organization itself. In particular, a
    code of conduct for LCA 2012 will be in place by the time conference
    registration opens.

    This announcement is a bit late in coming and the more astute of you may have noticed a mention or two in the council meeting minutes.

    In August 2010 the auDA New 2LDs Advisory Panel handed over its recommendations to the auDA Board. One of the items under consideration was the fate of the 2LD.

    In their final report [1] the advisory panel recommended that the domain should not be reactivated. However the report did make one other recommendation.
