By country or language sounds like it makes sense, but we could also consider looking at specific groups that various members of the WebEdCG might have particular experience in, or influence over.

Alexander and I have been discussing a lot about what is and isn't within the scope of outreach and we realized that there is definitely a need for clarification. Then, as a second step, we can look at what kind of sub-groups would make sense.
