Hi Paul,

We kind of agreed, back in June, to go bi-monthly, with Steve Walsh
giving his git talk last month, and the "privacy-fest" talks on in

If you are sure you will be ready to go next week and if people are
keen to come and find out about Insights, then I am happy to come in
and open up etc.

Otherwise we can leave it to a future meeting?


Bob Edwards.
