At an extraordinary general body meeting on March 25, SLUG members voted for resolutions to end the group's separate existence, donate its surplus property and funds to LA and function as a sub-committee of LA.
In preparation for this, LA has modified its sub-committee policies.
Linux Australia president John Ferlito told iTWire that the process was not yet complete.
"Not quite," he said when asked whether SLUG had already become a sub-committee of LA. "SLUG voted at their EGM to wind down SLUG as an organisation and apply to become a sub-committee of LA.
"This was successful but they haven't as yet officially asked LA to become a sub-committee."
The move to dissolve SLUG as a separate entity was driven by SLUG president, James Polley, "...in the main we end up merely duplicating work and expenses that Linux Australia does".
