No problem, I'll try to do one for the IPR enforcement directive soon.

oh yeh, she was working outside of government, from Norway on behalf of
EBLIDA, as you mention later (yes, same person).

Tony McGrath is the man in charge of producing(*) the draft, he's in
consultation with the Attorney General at the moment.

*Producing: I'm not sure if he's writing it or what.  Also, I don't know
 who or what exactly the Attorney General is.

I get the feeling that Ireland isn't putting much resources into
drafting this implementation.  I think it's just Mr. McGrath, and he
also has other work to be doing, so I recommend a low volume of
well researched comments.

Maybe it's best to wait for the public draft, I'm not sure.  If it takes
too long, I'll probably go ahead and start a letter.

Hopefully, myself, Teresa, and Ben can discuss tactics etc. on December
11th (plus anyone else interested).  I'll post a thourough minutes of
such a discussion.  Ben is on the list, Teresa isn't.

(agh, I know I *still* haven't posted minutes from the last meeting, but
it's mostly because not much got discussed other than the charter and
GNU Emacs)
