Indeed it is not meant to replace *your* choice of communication, however I
felt that there are a lot of people who prefer another form of
communication, like google community pages. I do have in mind that I try
not to fragment the uk python community any more as it already  is and I do
want to be held responsible for being a good community admin.
Tim Golden did suggest a bi-directional link, however I feel that this
might not be beneficial in the amount of +1's and me-too's I expect to
occur. However I'll try bridging it manual by posting stuff that is on this
list also on the community page and vice verse if appropriate.

I do feel that the community page is growing quite nicely as in the three
days of existence we have just over 100 members.

Kind regards,

Martin P. Hellwig
