Hi Pete, hello Russel, hello Roger,

Kris and me are the London Python Group Meetup organisers: Kris is the 
current "organiser-in-chief" at the moment.

The last meetup has been organised recently (12th Feb, thanks Russel) 
and the plan is to have another one in about a month time: no firm date 
or place yet.

* begin of shameful self promotion *
yes the group has reached its second year and it has nearly 500 members 
now: not as old as python itself but not bad.
* end of shameful self promotion *

Yes, we don't try to step over the "Dojo" meetings, we have clearly a 
different scope. And we try best not to overlap meetings.

I hope this helps,
