I think some of these pro-active things will be key.  A quick check shows we
have nearly 30 items in g-r that don't seem to be used by anything.  So there
is some low hanging fruit there.  Search for overlapping requirements and then
working with the impacted teams is a big job but again a very worthwhile goal.

I was only have joking when I said I can learn how to be a PTL in 2 things at
the same time :)

Regardless lets try to grow a team from the volunteers then we can decide what
the spin off looks like.

Yours Tony.
