Who would make it an 'official' web page?

I also don't think there is any need for any national GNU/Linux site,
official or otherwise, as this implies that the Free Software community
is not an international one. There _is_ a need for local user-groups,
who may or may not have a website, to extol the virtues of GNU/Linux and
Free Software in general. We can't encourage people using a national
website any more than an international website, and an international
website can be found, used, contributed to and funded by more people.
