This page is an attempt to gather detailed information about Debian Local Groups around the world, for integration of that information into Debian infrastructure and also in order to improve the quality and quantity of events and the promoting of Local Groups initiatives.

If you need help setting up or adding your Debian Local Group, come by `#debian-localgroups` on IRC (OFTC network).

If you would like to add a new local group to this page, please enter the short name of your group below, with no spaces. If you are the maintainer of a group page, you are expected to subscribe to both it and the [[LocalGroupsTemplate|template]] or subscribe to the RecentChanges RSS feed so that you are notified when your group page is out of sync with the template and more information needs to be added. When editing your group page, please replace the date at the end with @``TIME@ so that the current date is added.

Feel free to add any group to this list that deals mostly or primarily with Debian. If you have doubts, add it anyway and do as good a job in the description as you can. Please keep this page organized like it currently is.

Hint: if you need a mailing list for your group please create it on [[https://lists.debian.org/completeindex.html|lists.debian.org]] naming it debian-dug-<groupname> (dug is an acronym for Debian User Group)

<<NewPage(LocalGroupsTemplate,Add a new group,LocalGroups)>> (no spaces)

If there is no group in your area, you may be able to find Debian people in your area on the keysigning pages ([[Keysigning/Offers|offers]], [[Keysigning/Need|need]]) or the recent [[ReleaseParty|release parties]] pages.

This page is an attempt to gather detailed information about Debian Local Groups around the world, for integration of that information into Debian infrastructure and also in order to improve the quality and quantity of events and the promoting of Local Groups initiatives.

If you need help setting up or adding your Debian Local Group, come by #debian-localgroups on IRC (OFTC network).

If you would like to add a new local group to this page, please enter the short name of your group below, with no spaces. If you are the maintainer of a group page, you are expected to subscribe to both it and the template or subscribe to the RecentChanges RSS feed so that you are notified when your group page is out of sync with the template and more information needs to be added. When editing your group page, please replace the date at the end with @TIME@ so that the current date is added.

Feel free to add any group to this list that deals mostly or primarily with Debian. If you have doubts, add it anyway and do as good a job in the description as you can. Please keep this page organized like it currently is.

Hint: if you need a mailing list for your group please create it on lists.debian.org naming it debian-dug-<groupname> (dug is an acronym for Debian User Group)

(no spaces)

If there is no group in your area, you may be able to find Debian people in your area on the keysigning pages (offers, need) or the recent release parties pages.
