.. and, funnily enough, I do remember that AuDA's budget allows for quite
a bit of "education" this year.

Yes. Actually, located at http://www.auda.org.au/about/budget.html is the
transition to competition budget, which has:

"Education and Media"		$110,000

Ok. So maybe someone should have brought it up before, but now is a good a time
as any.

Chris, what exactly does the above cover? Will it/has it been covering
AuDA exposure and .. well, addressing the above concerns, or was it something
else?

Also, does AuDA have an updated document covering the actual incomings/outgoings
to date relevant to this transition budget? If not, can you give a reasonably
firm date when this document will be publicly available?

<rant>
People, people. The AuDA site has _oodles of documentation_. Why not _read it_
before running around and shouting blue murder? If you want to "get at" AuDA,
why don't you use the stuff that they've published (or not published, not clarified,
etc) and politely comment on it here rather than running around like schoolchildren
screaming "not fair, he's picking on me! he's getting treated differently!"
