I like Uri's suggestion that we must communicate more frequently with
the *.pm.org groups, but I'm not sufficiently self-deluded to think that
I could give orders.
We can email those lists directly, though. No need to wait on another
level of indirection via the group leaders. (All that they would do is
just forward the email to the various local *.pm.org mailing lists,
anyhow.) I have appointed someone in Toronto.pm to be my mail-out guy
and he is subscribed to all of the *.pm.org lists, so when I ask him to
he just sends out to them.
