Below the line was never posted to devel at .  Community news continues
to be published to the community-news at laptop.org list, which is open
(as far as I know).  I guess the only thing that's changed is that it
is no longer cc'ed to devel at laptop.org?  Should it be?

It's worth noting explicitly that sugarlabs can step in and fill some
of these needs as well.  Arranging mini-conferences and local user
groups, poking developers for regular blog posts, etc, etc.  Mel Chua
<mel at laptop.org> is interning on "grassroots building" this summer,
and you should certainly touch base & work with her if you can.  She's
already roughly wiki-fied my original email at
http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Community_liason .
