Dear friends,

Thanks for the several suggestions on the people who can put our 
position across and the concerned people have also responded with their 

Andrew Lynn has not responded since he is not on the list. I just spoke 
to him on the issue and he has agreed to be a representative. I am 
copying him on this mail and request him to become asap a member of this 
list (by visiting http://lists.fosscom.in/listinfo.cgi/network-fosscom.in).

Looking at various other suggestions, I will also speak to Kishore to 
request if he can become a member (or Raj or Gora can speak to him). As 
part of ILUGD team, he could be a good choice as well to be a part of 
this 2 member team.

I think for this process it is best we have Delhi people (for eg to 
attend meetings that may be fixed suddenly without much notice etc) ...
so should try and get Delhi folks.

Nagarjuna, Gora, Raj and Sunil have responded to suggestions for (not) 
including their names and I agree their views

We will work on the statement from the WIKI and share it later today or 
early tomorrow along with a covering letter for DIT etc, which we can 
formalize and then send off.
