Perhaps we could take a lesson from linux.conf.au. There was a time
when people were trying to attach as much as possible  to
Linux.conf.au. But rather than do this a model of allowing people to
test the waters through miniconfs and even a co-conference at LCA was
used. With the idea that when they got enough experience and
exposure/popularity they could host their own completely separate

So perhaps LA could work on a similar model. Help emerging groups
with similar aims by allowing them to work under the LA
umbrella for a while until they get big enough to stand on their own.
