It's been pretty quiet. The list had its inception in a 2005 DC
Wikipedia Meetup, but activity diminished over time. The original intent
was to discuss a U.S.A. Wikimedia chapter.
If you want to revive or repurpose the list, start talkin'!

I'm seriously interested in getting something going in the Western
USA.... particularly in Utah. I even have a meeting room I can reserve
in my hometown public library I was going to try and see if I could get
some support from even one other Wikimedian to get a meet-up and help
get something going in terms of a chapter in my part of the country.
BTW, I live right near the Idaho/Utah state line, if you are trying to
figure out where I'm at.
But as an FYI, there is some interest in a group based out of
Philadelphia, and they have been trying to write up a formal charter
named Wikimedia Pennsylvania:
This is not an "announcement", but something still being planned, but
any participants are welcome. A formal proposal and announcement is
supposedly coming soon.
So yes, there is some activity, but not necessarily on this list. I
don't know if a national chapter is necesarily something we should
consider, since it is such a tough nut to crack in terms of trying to
get something organized on a national scale, but state-wide chapters may
be something worth trying to go after like the PA one is likely going to
