Hi Tridge,

We should get Kate along to something with some FOSS advocates.
Might be worth waiting until tomorrow arvo after Kev announces
the new ministry - see who gets Education, and what, if anything,
Kate gets (I reckon she is in with a good chance to pick up
something but, being a Senator, it is not likely to be something
all that exciting to the FOSS world - but then again...).

We might want to bang on Bob's (McMullin) door as well and see
what interest he might have in fostering a renewed software (FOSS)
industry in our country.


Bob Edwards.
