I think there are two sides to the idea of meeting in the Church. If we
view it as a transaction that we get use of a church basement and they
get some people being more familiar with their Church that is win/win.
I'm not a religious person, but I can see the advantage to the church.
The disadvantage to kwlug is if it becomes known as a "church group"
with all the stigma attached to that. I 'm not sure what to do about
that, because religions and followers will draw lines in the sand which
may cause problems.
Would people feel funny about going to a Church basement for a kwlug
meeting? I would a little bit, but not that much. Floss fund would feel
like a collection then, which I don't like the idea of. We would need
to be careful in explaining.
On the otherhand, I wouldn't mind the idea of "converting" a church to
Linux, I always felt that the philosophies were more compatible, then
