Name change of ILUG to Indian Linux User Group (ilugcochin.org)

DJ Danial José Public Seen by 22

Hi,

Please let me know your opinion about name change of ILUG Cochin to Indian Linux User Group.

I have read the mailing list archives about name change of ILUG to Indian Libre User Group from Indian Linux User Group (ilug-cochin.org). Since the name changed to Indian Libre User Group (ilug-cochin.org) you can see what happened, most of them left the group. Where are they who supported the name change?

Have anyone notice that the mailing list of ilug-cochin.org is not functioning since more than two weeks!

Where are the Libre India Trust members?

So our new domain ilugcochin.org should change the name to INDIAN LINUX USER GROUP COCHIN.

Compare to Libre It make sense!

Libre is a bigger canvas and there is no need to change the name.

Libre is Freedom and it is not ancestral property of anyone. Libre is bigger than just Linux.

Don't be Linux specific. We stand for free software and what better to describe that than"Libre" ?

Thank you all for your feedback.
We want to update the website ASAP (ilugcochin.org), also what about setting up group server (groupserver.org) as our mailing list manager?

I think, it has more options than librelist and mailman.

Currently ilugcochin.org is hosted freely on openshift (paas offering from redhat), but management of the website will be too complicated for new volunteers.

Please share if you or, anyone you know has interested to sponsor the hosting or the development of ilugcochin.org.

Also share your opinion about which CMS and theme (wordpress, joomla, drupal etc)we will be use on our website.
