End of November is 8 weeks away, or two months.
It's still do-able, but only if we get everyone here, and *start*.

I'm happy to take the lead, but we need to get everyone at the table so 
we can start planning. I've brought in all the people I promised (I 
think we've got half the BCS OSSG committee here for example), we just 
need representatives of the other groups.
