I am with Lou here.  The discussion ended with the suggestion that we
take the list Syd provided on 2005-12-31 and ask Council members to
articulate for which of these modules they would like to investigate
and suggest improvements in light of The P5 Way of Doing Things(TM) to
their class structure.

Indeed.  So please send me lists of modules you are interested in. The
first week was to collect the wishlist, the second week to digest them
and send out the assignments, at least that was my understanding.

Fine with me.  That is pretty optimistic though.

It shows some funny Kanji characters when I look at that page in my
system here.  I was assuming Matthew wanted to get rid of those first.

Thanks Syd, the notes look fine to me,
