Of course, but others that are less visible (externally) too.

stop that larger group of people who do.
http://tbs-sct.ircan-rican.gc.ca/projects lists a subset of the
projects, those who have opted to have a public presence. (BTW: Yes,
this is built on https://www.chiliproject.org , for those who might
recognize it).

Exactly. There is also an equivalent structure/participants/projects *at
the provincial level here in Quebec*, and most probably elsewhere in
other provinces. Here it's the GRILL -
http://lists.ec.gc.ca/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/grill - and there's more.
The challenge is getting all of them talking together, or at the very
least, sharing (if publicly, even better) what they do, even daily. I
want to be clear this is not about setting up / bridging technical
tools, though, but using existing structures and know each other better.
