Starting a GNU/Linux user group?


Sourabh Khajanchi <horizon.reach02@gmail.com> who is a fifth semester engineering student in Bhopal, wrote in to say, “I am starting a Linux User Group in my college…. I need some help from you. I want  to know about the various events and activities a LUG should organise.”

My (hurried, and delayed) response?

Check this:
Linux Online – Linux User Group HOWTO
The Linux User Group HOWTO is a guide to founding, maintaining, …
6.1 LUG support organisations; 6.2 Founding a LUG; 6.3 Maintaining and
growing a LUG …
www.linux.org/docs/ldp/howto/User-Group-HOWTO.html

Most important:
set up and maintain (continuously) an active mailing list. Either
Googlegroups or Yahoogroups, if not your own server on Mailman, works
best.

Good wishes to you.
