Good for you for driving community.

There will definitely be calls from others who are not local to your meetup
to be able to hear or see what happens and if possible to interact as well.
 It is good if you can provide some of that.

Also, remember that "if it doesn't happen on the mailing list, it doesn't
happen at Apache".  This means that you should inform people about what is
happening, but you should avoid making decisions about the project at a
meetup like this.  Make the decisions collaboratively on the mailing list
instead.  If there are useful discussions at the user group that seem to
lead to decisions, have the discussions, but report them to the mailing
list and, again, make the decisions there.

This is very similar to the advice about avoiding a single key developer
for a project.  Make sure you spread the load in order to build a
survivable community.

This is going to be much more cumbersome than the decision and interaction
processes that the Tajo project used before it was the Apache Tajo project,
but that is part of what comes with being an Apache project.
