Hi John, Cameron, and all,

That's great to hear about all the interest!  It sounds like a great group!

Use of the FOSS4G name seems in line with the guidelines and appropriate.

Using the OSGeo wiki sounds appropriate too.  There is a lot of stuff
on there already and to make it most effective for your group and
purposes, you might want to diligently add a category to every page
something like: [[Category: FOSS4G-Aust-NZ]] then you can find all
your pages (see for example the OSGeo Board of Directors,
http://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/Category:Board).  A sensical page naming
scheme can be very beneficial too.

Have fun!

Best regards, Eli
