I think using it as a place for announcements and recruiting people is a
good idea. But again, I want to express that spreading out discussion
over multiple resources makes it harder for people to participate and
harder for new people to get up to speed.

We are not an officially approved LoCo because there has not been enough
of an organized effort to establish the group and put on events for the
group to officially apply at least from what I can gather from the
resources available on the ubuntu wiki and such.

The info on approved vs "new" LoCos is at:
