>  Dear all,
>  Thanks for the early responses.  At the moment we have expressions of
> interest from:
>  GBIF: Tim and Burke
> Costa Rica: ?
> Sao Paulo: 2-3 people
> France: tentative 1 person?
>  In discussion with GBIF (Tim R) we believe that this would be enough to
> make some good progress.
>  Can I please ask that we have a confirmation by the 17th June of a
> commitment to attend?
>  With this, we will begin arranging the workshop and logistics, and
> people can book flights etc.
>  (GBIF (TR and BK) have confirmed attendance should this proceed)
>  Cheers,

> *Subject:* Proposed workshop in Canberra - July 2014
>    Hello all,
>  There have been a couple of approaches to the team at ALA asking for the
> possibility of a visit to help advance understanding of the system.
>  Additionally we hear early indications of interest from the recent group
> who had a small workshop in Europe, but note their requests for improved
> documentation, processes and structure.
>  It is short notice but we would like to propose a workshop in Canbera
> for developers on the week of :  21-July - 25th July 2014
>  During this week we would aim to:
> a) exchange knowledge amongst developers
> b) collate wiki documentation on data management, and customization of the
> web portal
> c) discuss and make progress in the processes surrounding source code
> management - e.g. potentially moving to Github and defining procedures for
> contribution, and releases
>  Please note that at this stage and for the foreseeable future, we
> believe the components suitable for collaboration and adoption are:
> i. The biocache-hub webapp
> ii. The collectory webapp
> iii. The biocache backend processes
>  I understand that the GBIF secretariat will commit to managing the key
> pieces of documentation and assist in helping structure the project.  The
> ALA development team are committed to maintaining this codebase and using
> it to support applications in Australia. We don't envisage this being an
> off the shelf product such as the GBIF IPT, but rather a well managed open
> source project that people can contribute to and use as a framework to
> rapidly kick start their own developments.
>  If you have interest in joining, could you please reply to this
> expressing interest, even if only tentative?
>  Many thanks,
>  Dave Martin
