Not much point, membership is non-responsive.

Care to correct my impression?

And yes, I'm just messing with all your heads and could care less about

I've never been tasked with the John Lions Student Prize.
I caused the creation of the the John Lions Chair in Operating Systems -
probably better funded.

    UNSW was Johns' university. It is a good place to permanently locate
his prize.
        [he will be remembered there]
    Sydney Uni is second best.
       [very close ties with Unix community]
    Melbourne, home of Munnari & kre might be third - but would anyone
ever remember?

What's the formal process the Association has to go through to move the
JLSP funds to UNSW.
NOTE: Not into the Chair, but into one or more $1,500/pa student prizes...

UNSW in 2000 was matching individual contributions of $15,000 to provide
permanent student prizes of $1,500/pa.
[This was the genesis of the Chair, we got talked into bigger things]

For the Chair, there's a permanent steering committee - these are an
obvious group to oversight the JLSP.

And at UNSW, maybe the name could be "The AUUG John Lions Prize".  Keep
both names alive.
