Thanks Peter!

It will be 27 Nov (2013 programme:
We start at 19:00 so I can stretch a session for 2-2.5 hours, if things go
well we can look at a longer event in the future.

It would be good to have a quick call on this! I can Skype 19:30 UTC (or
later) Wed 30 Oct or Thu 31 Oct as a starting suggestion, we need Iain on
the call so I've booted up a pad.

*If anyone would like to join (even if you can't make the first meeting),
please record your interest in the project here!*
