Yeah, that sounds okay. But maybe it'd be better if it were
fortnightly, considering there are a fair number of PPs (not sure how
many actually). Otherwise it'd be a few months between updates. It'd
certainly be good to see a slight emphasis away from the European
integration and into more of a truly international co-operation. I
think PPAU would be quite willing and able to submit something when
the details are decided.
