Local Debian Groups

Preliminary List

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.

Note: The kwiki tables were huge and unmanageable for this so I've chosen the template below instead. Let's build the list here and then talk about moving it to www.debian.org or somewhere more appropriate.
