What is YACMaS?

Granted I am only new here but I like the idea of a seperate site.
Doesnt it look better for Melbourne Perl Mongers to have their own site?
Don't get me wrong.  I like wikis and I like perl.net.au.

Admittedly the current Melbourne.pm.org maintainer seems very busy on
other things.  I actually had the crazy thought that I might help
with/do the melbourne.pm.org web page.  I do envisage that such a website requires
information to be donated from lots of people.  But then so does a wiki.

Me too. :-)  If everyone thinks that the best way for that is the
redirect to the Melbourne_Perl_Mongers page then so be it.  But I like
the idea of a separate web site more.
