Dear Sorina,
Thank you very much for your last overall email, and for keeping us all
very much updated, even tho we have been a bit silent lately.
I am sure this is due to the fact that end of the year brings a lot of
hectic final work to be done, holidays fever etc.
This is at least the case with me, in addition with the flu that I got in
last 5 days.
In every case my apologise for responding to you only now.

Below, in addition to your email, find my comments.

@everybody at the mailing list: I wish you happy Xmas and New Year to come
- with best wishes. Enjoy!

It is great to see a lot of interest, and as well I look forward our work

Unfortunately, even tho it was in my plans, I will not be able to be at the
meeting in January in person.
Since we already have some proposed themes, I would suggest that we all *meet
online*, before the January meeting. This way it will be easier to gather
everybody's inputs in one place at the same time.
Sometimes, collecting inputs, especially since there is not a lot of time
until January meeting taking into consideration holidays, on the mailing
list takes a lot of time. Even tho I see below that there is online meeting
already planned - this would be a meting for both committees, again if this
would help with gathering inputs more effectively.
Until online meeting, we can all make proposals on our side to present.

> Therefore, we are proposing the following timeline:

Agree with this deadline. I already send an email to our comunity in BiH,
and hoping to hear from them soon.

> - 15 - 18 January: compilation of proposals (this will be done by the
> executive committee) and distribution to the entire list;

> to the list.

Since I will be traveling from the 20th January, 18th or 19th January would
work for me.  Webex will work. platform

> - 26-27 January: present the proposals and the outcome (if any) of the
> virtual discussions in the EuroDIG planning meeting in Sofia.

It would be great if we could have notes or at least conclusions from
January meeting in Sofia to be shared with the list, so that we can all be
at the same page and updated.
I know this can be very time consuming, so I thank you in advance.
