It's also inconvenient for those on the organising team. I've been trying 
to get back into the swing of things recently, after having lost track 
due to work pressures. Trying to find the current state of play has been
very difficult, and not at all possible by reading the mailing list.

I would suggest that we try and improve matters by getting people
involved in key areas to publish regular status reports / updates on the
list. I'm going to be doing this for teviot as of next week, so perhaps
that will get the ball rolling.
