Hi,

It looks great!

I have to say I have doubts about the mailing list thingy. I think it's start with just one for the two task forces. It's the best way to make sure both streams of work influence each other as we'd like to. We can revisit it if there's too much irrelevant traffic.
It seems less dangerous to split work that started from a common ground than to reconcile groups that had their own isolated spaces since the beginning.
Plus, I'm quite sure having several lists will create confusion on where to post many mails.

On the data annotation issue: would it be fair to record this more explicitly, i.e., stating that the provision of solution for data annotation is not in the mandatory scope? Of course it shouldn't prevent later inclusion, if a quick-win is found to be possible; it's just that we shouldn't commit, if we feel that it would send the group on a too difficult/untested path.

Cheers,

Antoine
