Excellent!  Now we just need volunteers who would like to help with
these tasks :)

I’d like to reiterate that none of these tasks should be done by one
person alone, but we do need someone for each task to keep track of
progress or to report on hurdles.  So if anyone would like to help out,
please do respond here.

June 30 sounds good to me.
