Hi Chaals,

I can see your point regarding evaluation - I think this maybe good 
because it gives us an immediate and tangible kick-off that will only 
last for 3 months. In that time we can in parallel start to think about 
these other areas including those you suggest However, I'm open to see 
what the consensus opinion is on Thursday - and I'll relate your 
thoughts to the group in your absence.

However, in the meantime, could you add your topics to the wiki - so we 
can discuss them on Thursday with the others - while also making any 
comments on the evaluation topic also on the wiki.
