I would agree with what Akemi writes above. On the 19 July the general
opinion was that Filipe should go ahead and draft out his idea. I suggested
that if needs be, I would help him with some editing of his work. Filipe
(from my reading of his response) was agreeable to that and was still
enthusiastic in helping. I have been waiting to see the initial draft. It
turns out that he (Filipe) does not have anywhere to do this work.

Please correct this oversight, Ralph.
