Well, we do need _some_ level of OCLUG approval to run an event under the
OCLUG name. I really don't think we need a show-of-hands vote at a
monthly meeting or written permission signed in the blood of the directors
or anything like that, though. For things like installfests it should be
sufficent to obtain a rough consensus via email that doing such is a good
idea, and then go with that.
I'm not a fan of bureaucracy in any form, and certainly don't want to see
OCLUG turn into a big crusty ball of red tape -- and it doesn't need to.
