[Webcom] UK local chapter

I just wanted the committee here to discuss any concerns they might  
have about hosting local chapter sites.  To date, most just use the  
wiki or create something on their own server somewhere.  Giving one  
or two leads from a local chapter access to drupal to create new  
content is a simple process.

Any concerns?  If not, I will help get Jo lined up to make pages.   
Really, the access rights are no different than those of our  
translators, so it's pretty simple to set up.

Thanks for nudging on this Jo.
