Certainly my support for the new charter hasn't altered any from my end 
of November response to it. I think as written it works well, and as in 
the past, we treat it as a minimum cut, knowing that the e-Gov world 
will change it's own priorities to which we will no doubt react to.

Are you calling for nominations to the chairs? Happy to step up if 
others were of the view that I would work well in that space (Yes - take 
that as a nomination if you like). Hell - end of the day I'm happy to 
just aid in mobilizing the community - we need the IG to happen.

I'd even go so far as to say that Charter Item 1.4 (Community Directory) 
should happen now - the issue with mobilizing the community is 
identifying who is part of the community and actively seeking them out.
