I'd just like to continue as we've laid out.  Fundraising is part of the 
overall Marketing Committee's charter.  We'll have special focus on that 
in the committee and integrate with other Marketing activities, such as 
the evolution of the JabberPowered program.  

I get the impression that you, Iain, and Heg would like to be in on this 
Committee, at least with respect to Fundraising.  Again, I'd like to 
reiterate my call for participation in this Marketing Committee effort.  
Any other volunteers?
