The purpose of the new category is to be able to categorize the lists
better.  If you are suggesting it to be named "Non profit" I think
that's a nonstarter, because all the other lists are not-for-profit too.

What I want is the categories to keep some relationships with the
descriptions we're going to give the lists.  So for PUGs we would use a
geographical region name (so the okpug list would be described as
"Oklahoma", etc).  For "regional lists" we would use a language name (so
pgsql-de-allgemein should be described as "German" or maybe "Deutsch").

If you're proposing to move pgus-general and pgeu-general under "User
Groups", that's fine with me too.


PostgreSQLFR and ITPUG have nothing to do here, because they're not
hosted on our archives site.
