i think this truly addresses and solves the problem.
then all LUGs can feed it into their sites, users can subscribe to the
RSS feeds, kenneth won't need a volunteer to populate the nrcfoss
sites, and well, the pretty maps are great for guys like me with no
geo-magnetic sense in my forehead.

so, the quick fox jumps over the lazy blue moon. :-)

between a choice for linux-india.org and the above site,
i vote for upcoming.yahoo.com with the pipe from philip.
+1
what's your vote?


the only task left will be to prod everyone to submit upcoming or
planned events to upcoming.yahoo.com site.

one last question: the compiled info on the site/page. can we
specifically mention the cc-by or  cc-pd or other license or public
domain dedication to that compilation?
