Looks quite interesting and useful, thank you.

We haven't listed them in any single document.

It can't be found in any central place, but most of the things that were
done were documented.  Some appointments with EU officials took place and
will take place.

I will give you a zope login today so that you can build the page into the

That's what working with Zope can be good for.  Other people can go over
