I think it is a good idea. Probably we can revamp the page
http://openstack.org/community/ and make it more informative, instead of
duplicating the information on a wiki page. I'll check with the

There are two reasons for this move: the first and most important is
that the whole openstack community is on launchpad, so we better be

coordinators of OpenStack user groups around the world can share best
