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.
