Dear lobbyfacts.eu collective! I hope you all had a great, relaxing 
winter break; happy new year to all of you. On Thursday afternoon we'll 
be chatting again as we have a collective cleaning session planned 
(thursday 10th January, 2-5PM). In the meantime it would be great to get 
updates on whatever progress has been achieved since we talked on 14 
December. I'm resending the notes from our last call, to remind all of 
us (incl myself) of the tasks we committed to do. I'm also very curious 
if there's any news from the Berlin-based web-designers.

One of the things we need to discuss in the next days is the launch 
date: 19 February turned out not to be available in the Residence 
Palace. Depending on how far we are with all the tasks, we m,ay anyway 
need a week extra (or more)... Shall we start the cleaning session 
Thursday at 14 o'clock with a short skype call about this issue?

friendly greetings

spelling…). Categories will need to be adapted before launch of the appli.

can be addressed*
