1. Who made commitments about participating in IT.COM ?
2. I don't think anyone here is declining to participate in IT.COM.

People who know each other from LI and identify with it, can still
go in as an informal group. We may not have a *legal* presence. I
don't know if that is a requirement - because there was a LI stall
last year, without LI being a legal entity.

That said, if we can finish this discussion and take it to it's logical
conclusion well before IT.COM (Nov 1 ?), that'll be great. But let's not
lose sight of our original goal (LI constitution, charter etc) and get
side tracked by IT.COM.

Since I'm a non voting member here, I'll let the other ILUG reps, speak
for their respective ILUGs.
