We're basically talking about KDE centric LUGS (KLUGS?) here aren't we.
Whether hosted in an office at bluesystems or down the local pub once a
week, that's really what they are, the meeting of likeminded people for fun
and profit. Which should be more of a thing (I'd like to meet with kde
users here in London), and something which 'official' KDE should help
facilitate with a webservice. That way it can be made clear who and what
are hosting these meetings, or open doors as they might be, the terms, and
the relationship, or lack thereof,  with KDE ev.
