I encouraged Don to apply for rep; IMO, an Australia/Asia-Pacific/Oceania rep is
badly needed, judging by the volume of calls and emails I got.

I can break my contact down into several groups:
  * Users with problems - point them to LUGs or such.
  * People wondering if KDE is safe to roll out in enterprises and stuff -
    unsure if the GPL lets them roll their own stuff out in a corporate setting
    (I had quite a few of these).
  * General KDE-related inquiries.
  * Media.

I strongly recommend Don, if only because we badly need an
Australia/Oceania/Asia-Pac rep.
