Yes, the other one is really a more techie one. So if the group is set
up clearly with outreach type of goal, that would be a win.

The name: that is a tougher one, I must admit... I will have to think
about it...

But, in the meantime, it is probably better to close down the current
one before too many people gather (I joined because I thought it is
possible to change the name easily. Oh well...)
