I'm thinking that in fact it's being driven by the *awareness* of the
fedoracommunity.org redesign that Mo is doing.  More visibility, and
people suddenly start popping up to say, "Hey, I'd like to get one of
those!"

What we have to be vigilant about is development of barriers between
the local community and the main Fedora Project.  Having local
communities has enabled Fedora to spread around the world.  But we do
want to maintain a unified project where everyone, whether they're in
Nicaragua, the Netherlands, or New York, communicates centrally at
some level.
