results in a duplication of effort and inefficient use of resources -
that SLUG be wound up as an association.

2) In accordance with the Associations Incorporation Act 2009 section
65, that all surplus property and funds at the time SLUG is wound up
be donated to Linux Australia.

3) As the property and funds donated to Linux Australia in this way
were originally donated to SLUG with intent to be used to support the
open source community in the Sydney area, that we request that Linux
Australia continue use the property and funds to support the open
source community in the Sydney area.

4) In recognition of the fact that there exists a thriving open source
community in the Sydney area, that the above actions not be taken
until such time has Linux Australia has:
   - Created a sub-committee, charged with supporting the Sydney open
source community by running monthly meetings, and by providing other
such support as may be warranted; and
   - Appointed to that sub-committee, at minimum, the person elected
as president at the next AGM to be the convenor of the subcommittee;
and as treasurer, the person elected as treasurer at the same AGM;
