<font size=3>Andre --  I am all for sharing GSBN information
--  I think it's best that you continue to be the link, however,
since you are up to speed with the network.   
You are also welcome to share test info published in TLS --  we
could put a package of relevant issues together to send to the
appropriate agency.  (Would be great to be reimbursed, if there is
any kind of budget....)

I don't know about the brushing up on my French part, but I'm fine with
giving these officials the DCAT info. Hopefully, everyone else will be
open to that as well.
