I wonder how actively this happens. I'd imagine that LoCo contacts are
usually very busy with high-level organisation and probably not editing
news sites themselves - so we lose a lot of event information somewhere
in the craccks.

If we had some place that news editors of Loco sites or people on a Loco
 mailing list (or Loco City mailing list) that are enthusiastic about
events etc could check we'd better share the workload and wouldn't
expect the Loco contacts to do that.

I agree that the page is a good start, but it's missing something like
"contact details for news site X" or "city team mailing list", etc.

That's probably not a bad idea, but the information is not persistent there.

I agree that we need to be careful about adding more infrastructure when
other parts of our infrastructure are probably under-used.
