Between the time I asked, and some of these later responses, I created
  https://www.bigtent.com/groups/kwlug.

Think yahoo / google groups on steroids. The only such I've come 
across that allows subgroups.

(I have no experience with bigtent, but did come across it some time ago.)

It includes forums, news, events, photos, files, calendar, reviews, 
polls, e-mail (I think) and I don't know what all else.

	If anyone has thoughts, experiences, opinions on bigtent, please 
chime in. I have no experience myself. Please check it out.


I can see sourceforge if a beginning repository becomes useful (if 
files on bigtent are insufficient), but I seem to remember some here 
don't regard sourceforge in a very good light. Better alternatives?


I've, so far, only created forums for General Discussion, kwlug 
Discussion, and New Member Help. The only event is the Jan. 4 meeting.

If it's useful, go ahead and start using it. I can create sub-things 
as demand is identified, create group, file, forum, admins/moderators, 
whatever, and so on.
