As Andrew mentioned, I've been hosting a weekly DAS/2 conference call
over here in the US, every Thursday at 12 noon Pacific time.  It'd be
great if Sanger/EBI folk could join in.  Would moving it to 9 AM Pacific
(5 PM UK) help?  And I'll see about getting someone to take notes for
the meetings and posting to the list.

I agree we definitely need to be more active about responding to
questions on the DAS/2 mailing list.  There's plenty to talk about...
