OK. then it's one more click to find regional resources

Yeah I noted that work and I wondered if it was you... Then please
take into account the additional data (not just for Italy) from:


we have several regional specific IRC channels and mailing lists.

I'm not sure if there are more, if you think this is useful I can
check IRC channel listing and mailman pages to see if there are more.

Content does not look very current there, for now I'd leave it out.

Yeah, sorry for lurking for so long... In return for your kindness,
I'll volunteer to help building the regional wiki pages hierarchy in
case we agree that's an useful thing to have.

Point 5 refers to clicking on the general, region wide link Sijis
suggested as well.
Point 6 assumes we already added to that landing wiki page the data
related to each regional team.

In the page linked above we have references to IRC and mailing list.

The team had a lengthy discussion about building a wiki and a forum
(we have secured fedoraproject.it). About the first one I'm pushing to
keep using fpo one, for the second the fedoraonline guys are already
doing a good job, but I'm interested in attempting to build the
mailing list -> forum like interface based on drupal you blogged about
some time ago in a effort to bridge the more experienced audience with
new users.

Since nothing of this is online, I think we can just talk about it later.

Thank you very much for your great work
