I dont think we need localised mailing lists, freebsd-users isn't exactly
and I bet that most of the suggestions for beer/curry/barbeques etc would
proably be
cc'd to the main list anyway incase anyone was in the area at the time, or
in fact
wanted to attend regardless.

Meetings seem to start out as: "I'll be in manchester over the weekend,
anyone up
for a drink", and end up as full blown meetings. They end up being organised
by the
person who kicks it all off in the first place, so 'I'm not quite sure of
the need for
"co-ordinators" as such.

Anyhow, </twopenneth>
