Hi all

Just because people want it, although not everyone, i'm setting up an 
unnoficial ubuntu-uk forum.  Please can you send me off list, so not to 
upset anyone, a list of catagories that people would want.  I don't want 
to upset the flow, of ubuntu-uk, but if people want a forum, i'll set 
one up.

If someone else has done it, the also let me know i'm not wasting my time.

The domain will be http://www.planetubuntu.uk

I'm hoping this will be a partner project with the mailing list and not 
a substitue.
