I'm in Stockton and I could help out.

Actually, the Central Valley Lug hasn't much steam. Maybe the two (2)
groups could be combined?

I am forwarding a message from the North Bay Linux User's Group.
http://www.nblug.org  There is a struggling Sacramento Linux User's
Group http://www.saclug.org that could use some help if you are in
that area or know people that are.

To add more context and summary, here's an excerpt from

PURPOSE: The purpose of this Information Technology Policy Letter (ITPL)
is to:
* Formally establish the use of Open Source Software (OSS) in
California state government as an acceptable practice;
* Add the OSS definition to the State Administrative Manual (SAM)
Section 4819.2;
* Remind organizations of the existing SAM Sections pertaining to
software management and security; and
* Announce changes to the Software Management Plan Guidelines [Section
120 of the Statewide Information Management Manual (SIMM)].
