Outstanding issues I'm aware of:


I noticed that the links for minutes for 2012 are wrongly captured under


Kindly fix this.

I think we should go for option a here.


I have noticed the link pointing wrongly to a page that doesn't exist on the domain. http://www.edgewall.com/trac/

On the Homepage for the keyword "Trac".  http://www.python.org/. Sidebar, Under the title "using python for' Software development"

As far as I know these are all outstanding - at least there has been no responses on the list to any of them. 

All the best,

May you do good and not evil
May you find forgiveness for yourself and forgive others
May you share freely, never taking more than you give.
