I feel that this formal structure at this stage is going to be counter 
productive - we need to get a lot of people on board first. We just have a few 
players at present. I rather like this issue based support model that is 
evolving - find an issue on which there is broad agreement, formulate a policy 
and work for it. Rocks.
