That sounds a little bit demanding...

And that borders on being rude. How dare you claim that it's "obviously 
of little interest to the rest of linuxsa" especially when I think 
you're actually lumping me in with "the rest of linuxsa"?

Why don't you? Or why don't you contact Linux Australia and see if they 
need any help in SA to do such things? Or why don't you turn up at an 
OSIA meeting and see if you can help out there? Or help out at AUUG-SA 
who could do such things?

LinuxSA hasn't ever really been interested in marketing and the media 
except for when it's been helping to organise Installfests or LCA's and 
then its marketing efforts have been to attract people to those events. 
It may be valid to see if it wants to change its perspective or focus 
but *demanding* it changes focus sounds rather, well, presumptuous.
