Good. I would like to add more user group events and invite others to
submit theirs. Right now I cannot find a link from the python.org site
anywhere. I think I need to supply such link to encourage people to add
an event. Of course, the link was on the a wiki page. But having it from
other places too might not be that bad an idea.

Regarding clutter, one of the intentions of having two different calendars
for conference-like events and user group meetings was to prevent clutter.
The way the box is set up, it shows only the most recent events. Therefore,
the worst that can happen that you see only events that are today because
there are so many of them. You need to click on the box anyway to see more
