I agree.

Regarding James preference for being involved in a non-PG org, my 
personal opinion is that PG has a bit of a reputation and therefore if 
we want to also have some influence in Ottawa it is best we stay a part 
of PG. That being said, I do not think there is any reason we cannot do 
everything James wants to do as PGCanada. (I'm a newby so I could be 
wrong in this assessment)

It is still my intent to work on the legal side of creating this org, 
however my workload in other areas has increased since before christmas 
rather than let up at all. I do have a wiki set up on my home server now 
at www.moores.ca/wiki My intent is to put up all the legal resources 
I've found about setting up a not-for-profit and the draft articles I've 
created for others to review, markup, and comment on, hopefully by the 
week end.

James appears to have software which can do everything we need, and 
Russel has offered us a server to run it on. Is there anything more we 
need to get started?

I don't think so.

If James and Russel could spend a bit of time getting the code working 
on his server, maybe someone else could work on building an interface 
for it's search engine.

I can work on the legal entity, and try to chip in a bit on coding if 
needed, though I warn you my field is embedded controllers not network 
servers so non time critical coding tasks might be best for me.

If this is agreeable to others perhaps someone else could suggest an 
appropriate time line.
