Well, SAGE hasn't actually done anything for us for a long time, other than
provide pointers on their web page. They haven't even given us any promotional
stuff for at least 3 years, which is long before the transition process
started.

LOPSA plans to be able to do things like provide funding for speakers, which
would certainly be a benefit to our group.

It looks to me like the most active members of the SAGE community are
supporting LOPSA, and many of them are putting their money into it to help
fund the organization. It looks far more promising than SAGE at this point,
especially since most of the volunteers who made SAGE work (when it did) are
putting that energy into LOPSA.
