Look, I don't want to sound picky here, but the fact that you personally
run Linux is irrelevant. The fact that this company also runs linux on
it's servers is irrelevant too as far as I can see, because the work in
question is
    (a) On a proprietary O/S
    (b) Using proprietary software

Where does Linux / FOSS fit in?

If the contractor required *specifically* requires Linux/FOSS skills,
then please state that in your advertisement.

This list has rules; it's not here for the convenience of everyone to
use as a general job ad list. If you want clarity on the rules, consult
the wiki.  If you think the rules are unclear, or lack detail, we can
fix that.  They're here: http://wiki.clug.org.za/wiki/Mailing_list_rules

I'm sorry to sound grumpy, but I really believe that people can't just
do as they please on clug lists.
