Group,

Chairs have been discussing how the deliverables of the group could  
look alike, balancing technical work with communications and outreach  
work; you heard me saying before I think we should put more emphasis  
on communicating...

Given the discussions we had so far on data.gov [1] and the recently  
hints on an upcoming data.gov.uk, and the number of increasing  
initiatives asking for input from the group, we drafted a memo based  
on the content of the Note that could serve as the group's high level  
advice on how to build any data.gov.* site [3].

We'd like to hear from you if this is the sort of deliverable you'd  
like the group to produce in year 2, what kind of audience it could  
help and also your thoughts about the content itself.

We plan to hold a Chairs call tomorrow but we could also bring this to  
the Group call next week.

Thanks in advance,
Jose.
