Since this question has been raised...

My personal interest in SF-LUG is primarily as a social group.  That's not
to say I have anything against outreach endeavors, tech support, etc (as
some of you know, I have participated in such things through SF-LUG in the
past), nor against trying out other venues (particularly if it's done
through additional meetings, rather than moving existing slots), I just
don't have much extra time/energy to devote to it myself.

I think it's entirely possible for the group to be multivalent, as long as
people remain free to choose to be involved/dis-involved in activities
without fear of admonishment, reproach, or alienation.

My $0.03.  YMMV.
