[ubuntu-uk] South West Group

Hi everyone,

This is my first post to the British Ubuntu Talk mailing list.

I came across this list and the Local Community Team web site via a link 
from the Ubuntu Desktop Guide.  I see from the web site that there isn't 
any proposed South West groups yet.  I was wondering if anyone had 
started a South West group and if not how could I go about starting such 
a group?

A few members of my local LUG (Devon & Cornwall GLUG) and I have been 
discussing how we can promote the use of Open Source software (Ubuntu, 
OpenOffice etc) to local businesses, educational establishments and end 
users in the Devon & Cornwall area.  Just trying to do things on our own 
hasn't come to much yet (a few CDs given out and one or two Linux 
converts) so I was hoping that joining this Local Community Team would 
give us a few pointers on how you folks have promoted Linux in your 
local areas.

If there isn't a South West group, I would be happy to set something up 
to cover Devon, Cornwall, and Somerset which are areas that the members 
of the Devon & Cornwall GLUG cover (as far as I know they don't 
officially cover Somerset but we have a couple of members in Somerset 
and I have other links to Somerset).
