whoa ppl, think this through a bit before you go galloping off to change 
the world.

do we have a common understanding of FOSS or FLOSS or linux or all three 
and the dozens of other words used to describe open source and/or open 
standard non-proprietary systems and programs?

does anyone other than the most dedicated enthusiast of matters open 
source appreciate any of it?

Just who would be looking for foss.au ... and why would they?

Is there a purpose in being identified as f/loss and what is it?

Who would use it?

... just some thought starters.

cheers

Bret, seriously. At the time of the post, the nominations period had not
opened (quite obviously so, when you read the dates), therefore "closed" is
not an unreasonable way to describe it. Plus, nominations are very clearly
open today (see the website).

Please read before posting your goofy assumptions.

Its a wording bug in memberdb is all. Don't worry, there isn't some
grand conspiracy by the illuminati to keep you from running :)

Re: Reminder: nominations for 2007 Committee are now open

Seems MemberDB isn't working too well.

Firstly, the names of the members who nominated are blank. Secondly,
there are a whole load of:

Notice: Error in sending mail: unable to add recipient [ <at> localhost]:
Invalid response code received from server in /usr/share/php/PEAR.php
on line 762

errors at the bottom of the page. I suppose this is to do with the
mailing of changes to a list or whatever.

Hi Andrew,

Thanks for letting us know. I'm having a look at the code now to see
where the issue lies.
