Instead of a VM summit this year we are having a web development summit 
on the Thursday before the conference, organised by Chris McDonough. An 
informal vm summit would be fine if you can get people together.

I've added your and Barry's suggestions to the agenda for the language 
summit, plus one from Steve Holden on what (more) the PSF can do for 
alternative implementations.

All the best,

May you find forgiveness for yourself and forgive others
May you share freely, never taking more than you give.
