Hi all,

The inaugural meeting for the C Safety and Security Study Group went 
ahead last night, and it now plans to meet every two weeks, roughly on 
the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of each month (with the option for this to be 
amended based on availability per meeting).

The mailing list for the study group is public and can be found here:
