Hi all.

Looking at the telco act of 97, it would seem that if a group is 
non-commercial, then there isn't much to be concerned about possibly?:

Section 34:

(3) For the purposes of paragraph (1)(h), a network is an exempt
network if:
(a) the network is used, or for use, for the sole purpose of
supplying carriage services on a non-commercial basis;

The brismesh list had some similar details, check the scanned questionnaire 
linked at http://www.itee.uq.edu.au/~mesh/list/msg00015.html

I'd think it would be fairly clear that the network is non-commercial right?
Though I guess interconnection to other networks _might_ be a problem, I'm 
not sure.

Matt Johnston.

This link should be hosted somewhere on melbwireless as it is a critical
