 Hello Dave,

 The GBIF France node is really interested by this kind of workshop. 
 Espacially after the test we made last week with  BeBif and AntaBif in 
 I need to speak with the French node about the possibility to come to 
 this meeting in Canberra. The next team meeting will be on the 13th of 
 June so I will be able to give you an answer at this time.
