I didn't know we could link them, thanks for looking into this dinda! Of
course if this is going to be too complicated we can just move
everything back to wiki.ubuntu.com.

I read the thread on the LoCo list.

Although I think we COULD be classified as a LoCo group, I'm not sure
it's worth our effort. We already have the internet resources that the
LoCo groups have (a mailing list, official IRC channel, website hosted
on Ubuntu box - a LoCo box!). I'm not sure we could gain much more, and
it is probably more challenging and time-consuming than it's worth.

Of course I'm happy to hear the opinions of others on this.

I'm so excited for you!

I might suggest that you make more of your Ubuntu Women contributions,
you've really done a lot of fantastic work here :) I'll try to stick
around for the meeting long enough for your Membership request to come
up, if not I'll be sure to drop a line to those who will be attending to
make sure my "Cheer of support" is heard.
