At least here in Chile we have a very active community, in the second
half we've a lot of conference, more than 6, where we were talking about
the use and development of GNOME project. We've named this initiative as
GNOME Meeting and at the moment we have gathered near 500 people in this

I hope that new Directors have in mind that regional groups are very
spread, active and important for the project. Either they are devolpers
or user.
