I personally think this is the best plan going forward and I also had the
same idea. I donated the original MeetUp site. I can donate a second (and
then work with the Python Software Foundation to get it officially
sponsored and controlled by the group.

Before I take any action, however, I will wait for 24 hours. Saturday
morning, by 9:30 am, I will register the new domain. Please -1 or +1 so
that I know the group consensus (or at least the group's feeling on this

If we do this, all will be restored except those who made payment
previously. It may feel like an injustice has occurred. And, it has on all
fronts -- everyone has been negatively impacted by this. We want to be
"made whole" -- and re-registering the domain would make us almost
completely "whole" in this matter.

Please +1 if you wish for me to register BayPIGgies again with MeetUp (I
will donate costs via my company).

Please -1 if you don't wish for me to take this action.

In an absence of votes I will take this action tomorrow morning (Saturday)
at 9:30 am.

Kindest Regards,
