Nope, I see them as having overlapping interests.  For instance, Chris
McDonough and I are presenting Repoze to the Atlanta Python group in
December, and the Atlanta Plone Group is helping promote it:  we are
going to be sprinting with some of the members of each group the
following day.  We are doing a similar effort across two days with the
Triangle ZPUG and the Charlotte Python group, as well.

 - I'd like to get as many conveners / program chairs /
   points-of-contact as possible subscribed to this list (we're already
   up to 23 members, from a standing start of 4!).

 - I'd like to find some way to federate / aggregate content (calendar
   events, blog entries)  from the various groups.

Pretty sad, actually.  I'm glad we're trying again from the Zope side.
