This looks great. Thanks.

My thought is that it is easier to get forgiveness than blah blah blah. 
Especially if it encourages Zope people to go to Python meetings. With 
Plone groups, it's a no brainer.

It's difficult. There are dead Python and Plone user group lists. 
Basically, you can't successfully astroturf. And it's often hard enough 
keeping a ZUG together, much less doing outreach. It has to somehow fit 
into think globally, act locally.

It helps that zope.org links user groups right on the front page and in 
the navbar. Yay us.
