How is the Ubuntu Ireland LoCo doing?

I'm wondering what is the state of the Ubuntu Ireland LoCo? Since
reapproval last year things have slowed down dramatically. The
things which greatly helped our reapproval in 2011 have all fallen
off the tracks. Regular irc meetings, hosting other events, timely
team reports, team website and more have all dwindled or disappeared
(not saying all are necessary but surely some of them are).
I'm not complaining, I fully appreciate that each individual involved
is doing so on a voluntary basis, but I just don't want things to
drift along as is without discussion. Based on the current level of
activity I personally couldn't support the next reapproval effort
(about a year away). Perhaps the approved status of the LoCo isn't
important. Interest in Ubuntu and the Irish LoCo has waned (no need
to rehash reasons here). All that is fair enough.
I just want to get a healthy discussion going concerning the state of
Some initial questions that come to mind (not an exhaustive list):
Is there anyone on the list interested in taking a more active role
in the LoCo?
Is our LoCo becoming far less active and if so is that acceptable to all?
Are we heading towards a non approved state and are we happy with that?
If we wish to remain approved how should we achieve this?
I'm certainly not trying to be controversial here I just want to have
this discussed openly and fully.
Best Regards to All,
