Who: all welcome
For some time, the feedback AUUG has been getting from members has been
that they feel we are not doing enough in the System Administration
space and that they would welcome AUUG doing something here. Consequently,
AUUG has decided to have a Systems Administration Symposium, along the
lines of the other symposia we've run in the past and continue to run.

This is the first in what AUUG intends to be a regular series of
