Funny you should mention that.

I suspect that in the future LUG.org.uk may start asking for donations for 
the running of the service, but that's by no means guaranteed. If they did 
it might also make sense to use some/all of that money to go towards FLOSS 

This has been discussed over pints numerous times in the past, but 
LUG.org.uk have been "lucky" most times having people donate physical 
hardware or money to cover the cost of hosting etc.

Indeed. More ideas welcome! 

Very shortly a new server and new website should be going into lug.org.uk 
which should help to foster better inter-LUG communication and 
collaboration, but any further suggestions are always welcome.

In fact I'll be running a BoF (Birds Of a Feather) session at LUGRadio Live 
2007 to talk about this more and get more ideas from people.
