NZLUG - New Zealand Linux Users Group
I've been an administrator for the New Zealand Linux Users Group for a blimmin' long time now. 2002 I think.
So using the Waybackmachine, here's some key stuff about NZLUG for those interested. I will at some point update this to 'current' and consider whether it should live on my site, or be re-instated under its own domain or server somewhere.
ABOUT NZLUG AND LINUX.NET.NZ
We have a variety of intentions:
To provide support and resources to Linux Users in New Zealand by way of the linux.net.nz domain and through the good efforts of our membership.
We continue to refine and redefine things as we go along, however the NZLUG has two key arenas:
The Website - www.linux.net.nz
The site you are now browsing provides a means to not only interlink Linux User Groups and Linux resources, but also announce news, views and current affairs as appropriate, in a relatively static form. Those interested are welcome to submit articles which will be approved by the NZLUG coordinators and published as appropriate, and as time permits.
The mailing list forms the core of the NZLUG. Dating back to the origins of the NZLUG concept back in the late 90s, it is an open-to-all means of discussing Linux and Linux related issues using email as the forum. The web archive is a resource in itself, as people discuss all manner of Linux related things and all posts are archived for posterity and the further use of others.
In January 2007 an Acceptable Use Policy for the NZLUG Mailing List was promulgated. A minor update to this was actioned in May 07.
Current information on this and other New Zealand LUGs can be found on our User Groups page.
We also offer our resources and subdomains of linux.net.nz for use by other LUGs and NZ Linux resources. Currently sites that utilise these facilities include:
Auckland Linux Users Group [Ed: Now relocated to Google Groups]
We also host a site in support of Linux Installfests nationwide. Check out http://installfest.linux.net.nz/. [Ed: No longer working. Should be able to fix...]
Our vision is that the New Zealand Linux Users Group is a resource to benefit all New Zealand Linux enthusiasts. We stand beside, and in support of, the other LUGs available nationwide and hope to compliment them by doing what we can to provide a useful, nationally targetted resource. It's worth remembering, in the end, that NZLUG is the sum of its parts; the members of its Mailing List and participants in its events and organisation. Being a member is nothing more difficult than being on our mailing list and taking part.
