SVLUG policy is formed by its officers and active volunteers. Our policy
about posting jobs has served us well over the years. Rick's action is
consistent with our policy.
As Rick indicates in another post, Linux user groups have a pretty
strong geographic orientation. SVLUG is about Linux in Silicon Valley.
I'm sure you know of ways to post information about jobs in other areas.
