Events functionality is an important part of groups.drupal.org. We want to make it more useful both for event organizers and event attendees.
Current events listing http://groups.drupal.org/events is a calendar view and is not very convenient for finding events.
As a first step for making events on g.d.o more amazing we want to redesign this page, to make it primary point for anyone looking for Drupal-related events.
Note that we are currently implementing more simple version, which can be done while we are still on Drupal 6. Things like map of events etc. will be discussed when g.d.o will run on Drupal 7 (for example on Commons)
