The lack of management of the melb.* hierarchy became an issue
in July 2003 when Telstra deleted melb.general from their newsserver
because they had received an rmgroup message sometime in the past.
Clearly a hierarchy maintainer was required and ausadmin
volunteered to add this role to its existing maintenance of
the aus.* hierarchy. Ausadmin has been maintaining aus.* since

Ausadmin is currently
Nick Andrew (www.nick-andrew.net),
and operational staff and facilities are provided by
Tullnet Pty Ltd.
Please note that this website was cloned from the main
ausadmin website at
and so some details may be incorrect for melb.*
