Just a couple of quick updates:

1) Codethink public contributions
Due to some urgent project requirements, Codethink's core contributors 
are busy elsewhere for the moment, so Codethink's engineering activity 
on process/model is suspended for a short while (we'll still deliver our 
2FTE commitment over this full year, I'm sure)

2) Private list
At a multi-party meeting last week, we established that some potential 
contributors want to discuss some aspects of their needs and involvement 
on a private list, so I agreed to create one (called trustable-private). 
IIUC there are two key reasons for this:

- some people are expressly not permitted to comment in public, as a 
result of their employment terms or cultural norms in their organisation
- some have never commented on public lists before, and would like to 
get familiar with the discussion and practices in private, before 
'stepping out'

I'm happy to facilitate and contribute to private discussions (since I'm 
involved in many already), but I expect that I'll be mainly encouraging 
people to bring the meat of the conversations out into the open whenever 

As David A. Wheeler said on the C Study Group list recently [1], 
"sunlight is the best disinfectant".
