The Mozilla Open Directory's
Linux Users' Group Category has been relatively unmaintained for
a long time. Recently, I became an editor of it and was able to sort out
the pending links. Now I need your help in putting in all the other LUGs
that are not yet present.
If you know of an active Linux User Group, please check whether or not it
is present in the Dmoz category, and if not submit it through
the Dmoz interface after you made sure it fullfills the following
- That it is active.
- That it has more than a standard web-log. Mailing Lists are a must,
and organized events are a very good advantage.
That its site is in English. If this is not the case then please submit
it to one of the Dmoz.org foreign languages branches.
Make sure you submit it to the correct sub-category. The category is
split into geographical regions, and you should find a sub-category
that matches your region.
While there are other lists of LUGs out there, the Dmoz.org one has an
advantage of being part of the most popular web directory out there, whose
functionality is also integrated into search engines such as Google.
A final note: I'd be happy to have co-editors for this category. If you wish to
become one, follow the standard Dmoz.org procedures for becoming an editor.
Just wondering if it is DMozixly correct to put LUGs under the Computers hierarchy: shouldn't the category be a set of links to categories in the
right places in the Regional hierarchy? I haven't been an editor for a few years (resigned as part of a protest a few years back), but maybe a
post to the Computers and Regional fora is in order?
