Hi Jane,

What can I say?

I can tell you have experience organising people's work.
i totally agree with you on how we could better use the 1 hr. we have.

>From my side, and the things I am doing for edubuntu, I'll prepare
shorts reports that'll be ready before hand. Another possibility is
that we all prepare reports and send them to the list, and use the 1hr
to exchange points regarding the reports.

best regards,

Mauricio Hernandez Z.
