 4.1. Report by cwicket

  The Telecom package is beeing discussed at the EU parliament.
 Amendment N°138 is quite important.
  We should motivate all PPs to express themselves on this specific
 vote to show our concern.
  Laurent is working on a document for that.


 5.1.  Discussion about the PPI front page (initiated by Valio)
     What do we wanna publish on it? who should have access?
     Conclusions: We should have a place for dumping news, so that
 people can pick it up, and write a PPI story about it.
     Somehow we might setup a project and appoint a manager to that
 or it will a be mix between cwicket, ninHer and pingu.
     Because of current time constraints and work on a local level,
 pingu is unable to provide time for that, almost till the end of the
     He also is not aware to appoint someone as a replacement.
     In the discussion it becomes clear, that ad interim we have to
 find a replacement. coretx makes an official proposal.

    The issue about the DNS has to be finally solved.
