Hi Jenny!

Thanks for the summary :)

I've translated your message into Portuguese, it's now on the Brazilian
working group's blog, I'm hoping it will attract more volunteers:


((I wonder if there are people from other Portuguese speaking countries
on this list.))

Beyond the BR WG stuff, I might volunteer myself to help with open
science manuals globally if no one else shows up, though I still got to
check with some other commitments I've made this semester. :|

Cheers, - I should go make some tea now...
