I'm now confused--I thought we wanted to publicize the statement to obtain additional endorsements before we filed it on the 7th.  If that's not the plan, we should clarify ASAP.  I don't have a very strong feeling either way, I just want to make sure we're all on the same page.

>> Hi Pranesh--I just wanted to confirm when it will be OK to publicize the document.  We'd love to publish a blog post tonight Baku time (Monday morning in the US) if we can, publicizing the statement and seeking endorsers, though we can wait if the group thinks it's necessary.  Are there any groups/individuals who were in the room or participated remotely who we still haven't heard from?  And do we want to do some kind of coordinated announcement, or is it OK for us all to separately blog and tweet about it?  Perhaps Jeremy should be the first to announce, via Twitter, since he organized the meeting and has been tweeting about the process?
