able to help them understand how we do things around here. It's your (US) tax dollars going
into this work.

the projects and their infrastructure as a way of helping projects and the program overall
catalogue their activities.

to mind (including yourself) that would be relevant either with experience in Incubation,
or from the DOAP/catalogue.  Do you think your experience with SIMAL would be relevant here,
might you be interested?
