Hi Jordan!

Sorry for the belated reply. Ronan can go if he is involved with the
OKF in any capacity. Hence I would suggest that he joins our working
group on the public domain.


Do you think he would be interested in contributing to this? For
example in reviewing work on a UK public domain calculator?

If so we can certainly reimburse him -- all he has to do is save his
receipts, let us know what he has spent, and send documentation to

If he's interested perhaps you can carbon copy an e-mail to myself,
Sara and Ronan.

All the best,
