I'll get straight to this the moment I've fixed the bug which means one 
no longer gets auto-logged in to trac (so you are always the 'visitor' 

I'd also like to suggest that we have an irc meeting after the user 
stories have been allocated. This will be a chance to go over the plan 
as well as volunteering for particular tasks. I propose we hold the 
meeting in the OKF's irc channel on oftc.net: #okfn and suggest having 
it at 1830 GMT this thursday.
