Hi All,

 From the lack of responses I guess there is no appetite to 
reschedule the May meeting to discuss the distribution of the 12.04 
CDs.  I have updated the wiki and IRC channel to reflect that the 
next IRC meeting is to be scheduled.  I will be on vacation for a 
large part of June so I'll leave it to other LoCo Team members to 
organise the June Meeting (if there is to be one).
