OK, folks.  We're on the Python wiki (
http://wiki.python.org/moin/LocalUserGroups) but the link currently points
to our mailing list page.  If anyone out there is keen to making a wiki
page, knock yourselves out!  I'll contact the PSF about getting on the
python meetup list.

Chad, do you know if Ryan and Silver  Orb still hosts this kind of group?

Jeff, concerning the community meetup, do you think there would be interest
in doing a sprint at PyCon?
