Thanks for the update.  Could I kindly ask for your confirmation on these
two matters:

1) I understand that the President Committe is fairly new, may I ask who is
represented on the committee?
2) I was also not aware that John was involved in the 'testbed' scenario
until I saw the attachment you sent, based on some of his responses in the
Council meeting.  Would he be working on that with you.

Many thanks ahead,
