I think that offers a good combination of "Making scheme.org a good
first stop for newbies", "Not putting pressure on the maintainers of
scheme.org to keep tutorials and introductions up to date" and "Not
making seasoned schemers looking for some reference information have to
scroll too far down the page".

Yeah

Yeah, that's handy for people who can't remember if the URL is singular
or plural when entering it too!

Yep, the Scheme Workshop is a major event, so can have its own subdomain
- which events.scheme.org links to, of course!

I'd suggest:

 - event[s].scheme.org is the canonical page where Scheme events can be
found.
 - [subdomain].event[s].scheme.org is available to anybody who's hosting
a Scheme event to apply for a nice URL, if they want it.
 - workshop.scheme.org is basically schemeworkshop.org
 - Each workshop group is welcome to use schemeworkshop.org/YEAR or
{some prefix as domain names can't start with
digits}YEAR.workshop.scheme.org or workshop-YEAR.events.scheme.org or
whatever, that's up to them
 - But it all gets mentioned on event[s].scheme.org and, automatically,
currently pertinent ones get hoisted up to scheme.org itself.

In general, any event that is part of a series is likely to want a Web
site for the event in general as well as for any given instance of the
event, and I don't think we need to standardise how they handle that, as
long as there's a URL for each actual instance we can put on
events.scheme.org, and if there's a URL for the "series" as a whole we
can have a "regular events" section on the events page for those too.

Yep! That would be great to bring into scheme.org.

If they're groups that have a meetup, then that should go on events - a
weekly meetup group might indeed have a URL for the weekly meetup and
not URLs for the individual instances, a case for the "regular events"
section!

There's also groups that are IRC channels, mailing lists, Usenet groups,
subreddits, etc that aren't in any way "events" because they're always
there and should probably just be listed under something else ("social"?).
