Discourse category for Local Chapters

Description

Given the recent request for a category for Estonia(1) and also another one for Spanish Geoinquietos (over Telegram) I think we need to agree on how we want to organize this.

Any disagreement on creating main category for all chapter discussions and then put all of them in child categories?

Something like:

Local Chapters
|_ Estonia
|_ Spanish Language
|_ France 
|_ Geoinquietos Spain
|_ Geoinquiets Barcelona
|_ Italia (GFOSS)
|_ Germany (FOSSGIS)
|_ ...

I only find the Spanish Language Local Chapter as the one language specific, and the rest of them are all(2) about geographies, so not worth splitting this further, right?

Oh, sorry I already see there's a Geoinquietos category 🤦

@Vicky, do we really need a parent category just for those microchapters?

There are local chapters, that have been approved as such by the board, and they have some obligations like an annual report to the board.

There are groups within countries that might be working as local chapters, no obligation to the board, but not yet applied to be an OSGeo local chapter, call them "community groups". (an example is the Mexico one, they are legally formed as "QGIS mexico" but they plan to become a local chapter)

On the OSGeo web page

On the wiki

  • There is a list with also a mixture of local chapters and community groups

https://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/Local_Chapters

We could have:

Local Chapters
|_ Estonia
|_ France
|_ GeoInquietos Spain  
Community groups
|_ Geoinquiets Barcelona
|_ Mexico
|_ Spanish
