Going to linux.conf.au (again, finally)!

I'm very excited to be able to report that I'll be attending linux.conf.au again this year, first time since I left Australia.

By a happy coincidence, we'll already be in Brisbane during the week of linux.conf.au, so it was a bit of a no-brainer. The last time it was in Brisbane was the first linux.conf.au I went to.

Tangentially related, Valerie Aurora has just announced the publication of a conference anti-harassment policy. I've never heard of any inappropriate behaviour at linux.conf.au, but as a past organizer (of the 2005 conference) I think it would be a very positive thing if it adopted this policy anyway. Based on what I just read in the LWN article, The dark side of open source conferences, it would probably help attract more female delegates if they knew that the conference held a specific position on sexual harassment.
