Are there any Press Releases that are available about this merger and
planned expansion in the UK?  If so, we need to forward them on to
Computing and Computer Weekly (and others) pronto.  This merger is the
big flash of light that we all need to make advocacy work be seen.  We
need to get this noticed by the rest of the UK copmuter industry.
Particularly with Linux getting so many mentions, this can only be a
good thing.
