WE need to clarify the wording a bit more, re: "local chapter", "local interest group", etc.

Maybe:

  • Local Chapter
    • Group of users, interested people;
    • same overall goal as OSGeo;
    • acting on behalf of OSGeo;
    • Acting within a limited, specified geographical (and/or language) outreach;
    • Generating good PR, media coverage;
    • ...
  • Local Interest Group
    • adapts the work of the comittees to local realities or
    • acts on behalf of comittees
    • Acts together to solve local issues that don't need OSGeo supervision

(my ideas on LIGs are not much useful, aren't they? ;) Pmarc 02:05, 21 June 2006 (CEST))
