There have been a few disjoint discussions about US chapter formation
recently. Austin mentioned this in a foundation-l thread last month;
Alex756 yesterday mentioned the idea of a regional chapter, and I note he
had started a page about "wikimedia new york", reminding me that there is a
[dormant] mailing list for such discussions. Those who are interested,
please sign up for the mailing list, and use Meta, so the discussions do not
get too fragmented.
Outstanding issues : Does it make sense to have regional chapters? How
could a national chapter work in a large country with distributed clusters
of users? What are the legal issues involved? (Alex can help here). What
are possible projects to take on?
