I've been speaking with Bill Kerr and Bernie about establishing an AU
local lab for a few weeks now. More recently I've been talking to
Pia, who is setting up the http://olpcfriends.org community, and
Rangan, who is the Executive Director of OLPC-AU, and among other
things is running a "G1G1" for Australians.
We've got lots of interest in Sugar, and a number of people who are
setting up their own groups to work on it (weather that is Sugar
directly, or under the name of various OLPC groups). Working out
where a local lab fits into all of the above is something I've been
spending some time thinking about recently.
My current thought is perhaps Sugar Labs is a common banner to group
contributors under, as a place for meeting, sharing and discussing
online. They can then take that with them as they go out to trials,
deployments, and other groups.
Do you have any thoughts?
 offlist. This thread is a good reminder (to me) of why it's good
to have discussions onlist
 I think he should be the executive officer, so we can call him the XO :)
