Google wants one central group for each language, but TPF would 
certainly be happy to have volunteer mentors from SPUG, and distribute 
the organizational share accordingly. (I'd connect you with Baden 
Hughes, secretary of the grants committee, to work out the details. 
He's acting as our primary contact with Google too.)
