proposers with any questions that they have about their proposals and the

The proposed dates are next week Thursday and Friday. The Doodle poll is
here: http://doodle.com/s2g39ctd4aaig58k#table. However, only one person
has joined me on the poll.

for proposals" document, and the email regarding intersessional work, are
circulated to the national & regional IGF networks. This will allow time

spirit into some work now.

I'd be curious to hear others' thoughts on what I've proposed.
