 The attached patch updates the existing WordPress News dashboard widget to
 also include upcoming meetup events and WordCamps near the current user’s

 If the site has multiple users, each one will be shown the events that are
 close to their individual location. The dashboard widget will try to
 automatically detect their location, but they’ll also be able to enter any
 city they like.

 There are a few minor things left to clean up in the patch, but it's close
 enough to start reviewing and getting a final round of feedback.
