I think it's a matter of considering what we are doing as a group and what we do individually. Individual participants are of course welcome (and encouraged!) to be involved in any discussion they want, providing advice, staying in touch or establishing first contacts with the various communities they're dearly interested in.

But we as a group are "only" chartered to seek facilitation for such discussions. Which we will do crucially by "charting the landscape" of the LLD cases, issues and solutions, and thinking about what kind of initiative/support action is needed in the near future to facilitate further LLD adoption. But also by having set up a public wiki, and the public-lld community list, i.e., spaces where the discussions mentioned above can start. This is however quite different from setting up some kind of consultancy committing to give advice (even informal) to everyone that requests it ;-)

Cheers,

Antoine
