Sorry I wasn't more clear.  I tried, and used words like "co-editor", 
but the best laid plans of mice and men often go awry.

But we are looking for more than someone to just push TR copies, we want 
someone who (like Ian) understands the issues, and knows how to help 
drive progress through consensus and technical expertise, and who can 
dedicate themselves to the task.

Yes, we are.

Thanks, but we are indeed looking for full-fledged co-editors.  If we 
don't find any likely candidates (and maybe if we do), then we will 
certainly take you up on your offer to help with the administrative 
work.  Thanks!
