I would suggest that before you go to all the bother of creating this
website and the accompanying organisation you research whether there are
any other, more general, websites that could be put to this use. I would
suggest the FSF, for starters...

I would further suggest that, assuming none of the above suggestions
work and you do set up this website, you will need to find a local
(G)LUG to maintain it with you.
