That sounds like a good idea.  The pointer could consist of an email
address of one of the group members, and/or a link to a web page for
the group.

I'd do it right now, but I seem to be having problems contacting the
repository to update the web pages...

The iconv utility is supposed to do this. If you're on Windows:  I
have a copy of iconv for Windows on www.murdoch-sutherland.com/Rtools,
but you might not need it. Lots of editors (e.g. Windows notepad) can
also do this conversion.
