I thought you would reply with some links to the lists or user groups in
europe and that in india so that we could have had a comparision. alas you

Its ok i will do it for you.

Well this list of user groups and communities that i am listing out may give
an insite into the lenth and breadth of the free software and linux user
groups in india. I do admit that free software dosn't encorage listing lug's
but as FSF-I i think we can change them to glug's or free software groups
this list also includes irc channels. can we consider irc's as groups?

http://wikiwikiweb.de/LugsList  (119 groups roughly)
[thanks FN for listing the groups]


 Well this list also consists of groups that are there in asia, africa and
latin america too but that section is hardly 25% of the wiki page.

These are the lists of groups that include lugs, glugs, fsugs in europe.

http://www.linuxlinks.com/UserGroups/Europe/United_Kingdom/ (90 groups

Well the links that i took may or may not be authentic. But that dosn't stop
us from assuming the wide spread of free software.

I don't think the number of activists in the groups of europe have
outnumbered than that of indian groups.

to get things more clear.

How many groups and activists should be there in order to form a chapter?
