I read it. It didn't seem to say anything specific.
If you disagree, then please feel welcome to cite.

Paul did _not_ say that.
Paul said that SBAY had not benefitted us in that (among other) areas,
since SVLUG has its own resources.

You've just spent a paragraph ignoring my point. But you should
certainly raise this again if SBAY ever _does_ start footing the bill
for general liability insurance.

You've again just spent a paragraph ignoring my point.
> Has SVLUG ever officially worked with another technical group?
Obvious example that comes to mind: BayLISA and Taos Mountain for the
Future of Linux event.
