So I've been working on a new project, the openSUSE Local User Groups. The idea is to have local groups of openSUSE to help each other, and help introduce openSUSE to their area.
This is a great idea.
So what I'd like to do is that I know we do have openSUSE user communities already in some areas, so I'd like to hear from them about this project. Also I definitely want some help with this.
Absolutely. This is something that we really need to do, so I'd be happy to talk with you about whatever I can do to help. Where are you based? Will you be able to start a group up in your area?
How many openSUSE users do we have in the Tampa, Florida area? I'd love to get a group going in the Tampa Bay area.
Do we already have any openSUSE-specific groups?
What I'd like for this to come to is a place where people can meet face to face, and promote the 11.0 release, get 11.0 release parties organized and other things.
I'd love to have some 11.0 parties, and also localized promotional efforts around the release so we can really start pushing a new user effort with that release.
