It would be nice to have a proper website for FSUG.
- So that our activities can be archived properly. our achievements can be recorded, and the website can be used for outreach activities.
- An FAQ section in the website can be maintained to address the newbie questions about FOSS.
- A Ticketing in website will be useful in giving help to new memebers of the group. today, all the knowledge we generate as part of team work is lost in the chatrooms/ groups.

-- related to this, it was observed, that the existing notice we have on FOSS, even though good, needs to be redone to a format where the message is quickly delivered.
