Even though I'm not part of the Council, I saw your ticket opened on
the council Trac about this event and took another look at your G11N
FAD page. The original request may have slipped under the radar
because it came during a time when some people were on holiday.
Thanks Paul for going through the proposal :)
Council folks: Is there any Council input required on this FAD for it
to be approved? If not, I would ask that the Council put this on
their agenda to approve at the next meeting. If so, er... have at it!
Yes, will be very helpful if we can get some input for this.
