What is your problem with Free software user group bangalore? You were
an active volunteer of FSUG for past 2+ years.  You were the contact
person in a lot of FSUG Press releases.  And you represented FSUG in a
lot of College seminars. You were Organising a FSUG's Joint Programme
with Christ & RV college (RMS Programmes in Christ). so what is the
issue now that makes you to say the above quote? Is it some critiques
on FSUG's work? or is it some ideological differences?  Please
I Believe FSUG is still open for anybody to point their issues. It is
the way online collectives work

Also I believe Movement for Free Software in Karnataka was a temporary
banner setup to address the campaign against VTU-M$  Curriculum tieup
.  It was came up suddenly as a out put of gnus grazing (i couldn't
able to participate in it, and there was no discussion on the list
about timings or venue to ensure participation of all) .  As we
supporting any Free Software cause we all supported it and
participated in it.  But I have serious critique on making it as a
permanent banner. Movement in Karnataka need to be created by various
users groups and Organisations works on gass root. They can come
together on issues affecting Free Software community. But If some one
starts to differentiate himself from a group and starting to represent
as a leader of an appex group, It really shows the problem. This will
not lead us anywhere

Any responsible politician should be encouraging a home grown Free
Software industry because it creates the basis for future jobs.
