We could collect the relevant URL's somewhere.

From my point of view more coordination would be useful.
I do not see any conflicts right now.
What I propose:
1. find a way that allows to find out who is working on what
2. find a way to communicate the diffrent approaches
3. find out were there is conceptual consens

If there are no conflicts, there is an enormous potential of
collaborative power.

Many AIC-I people - founders even - are active in davic and vice versa.
I have had conversations with DAVIC management about AIC-I.
This is a small world ...

What do you mean / propose?
Do you see conflicting interests?
