This is part of focusing on new users Cameron, trying to source case

If you go back to the outreach focus you should see the reasoning behind
the breakdown:
- Committees describe the internal functioning of our foundation, most of
these groups are already happy communicating on the wiki.
- Local chapters are an out reach tool and should be highlighted on the
