why? random get togethers specialising on a particular topic would be

it is only if it becomes regular and, say, slug-debian people stop coming
to slug that you get the split

splitting the list == permanent division of people == BAD

splitting the meetings == permanent division of people == BAD

having random interval SIGs == people who want to learn a little extra do
so in a helpful environment on a wide variety of topics == GOOD

the SIGs don't need to be as big or as specific as the fests... the kind
of ideas that are behind MacLUG are appliable here...
