I think the national events should be left up to the national groups.

I guess Federico thinks about what is called "linuxday" in Italy, where all
the local LUGs do regional events on the same day. I don't think, however, this
makes a lot of sense for PG at a european level.

So my vote goes to leaving this to the discretion of each national
(or regional!) group. So the Prato people can do something original every
year, the germans maybe can piggyback LinuxTag (or whatever).

Yeah, that's a another puzzle to solve...
