Hello Evan,

this is in response to your call for "assistance" to the AGAT group. 
This group already has eleven members, so I hesitate to propose my name, as the effectiveness of a detailed piece of work such as this is best ensured by a smallish group.
However, if you and the other members think I could bring some added value, please let me know.
