Dear all,

I think that some of you have seen the call from Alan 
already. As our capacities are rather limited, I don't 
know whether we can find somebody from the EURALO 
board or volunteers to join this WG. Perhaps we can talk 
about the issue at our monthly EURALO call next week.

Kind regards,
