Dear Matthias,

This is wonderful.  Thank you.

A couple of questions and requests.  How often does the bot update the map?

The template holds url= for the external web site of the user group
but that appears not to be exposed in the wiki of the map.  Please add
the url to the map and wiki.  In your example, the Decatur, Georgia,
group is maintained on facebook but that can't be seen without looking
at the template source.
