+Ross (ComDev chair) met face to face with Nick Burch (ConCom chair) to discuss
+a stronger relationship between ConCom and ComDev. As a result Nick has done
+a little work on the speakers application. The intention is to make a number

in project 
+and foundation pages. Work is ongoing.
+Nick and Ross also discussed the potential relationship relating to events.
+Nick has shelved this work in preference to working on the RFP for producers.

-Objectives for next period
+In the last few days before this report there has been a great deal of 
+discussion on general@incubator.a.o It seems that reform is in the air and
+many people are suggesting that some of the key functions move to ComDev.
+However, there is no consensus in the IPMC about what the future should look
