Ok, that makes sense.  If all 15+ groups posted all their meeting
announcements every month, it would probably double the traffic on
-announce :)

Do you have some suggestions for announcing the regional events? In
the past, groups seem to fade into obscurity after a few months --
even if they are meeting regularly. Posting only to the PUG lists I
think misses out on a huge opportunity to contact people who are
travelling, are new to PostgreSQL or didn't subscribe to their
regional mailing lists because of some other reason (not necessarily
because they never want to attend a meeting!).

Mailing lists are still the most effective way to let people know
about events (way better than blogs/rss/etc) -- and while some people
*do* search for regional information, most do not. Am I missing
another obvious place to post meeting announcements?
