Re: Feedback on charter
Thanks a lot for your valuable comments. I was just preparing the new
website and now put it on-line (see now www.daasi.de/wgs/CGS ), but
unfortunately until now couldn't include your comments (that weren't
allready included). I will try to do some fixes tommorow as well as
include links to the presentations. As soon as I get them I will also
include the meeting minutes.
FYI: until now 16 people have joined the list.
