[been out of office yesterday, will respond to other emails today on  

I was chatting to David Shaipro @Pilot at the conference about getting  
further info from what is on plone.net and yes we thought phone calls  
would be the best way to validate the info.  There are ~200 companies  
on plone.net.  Would also be a good chance to plug the plone.net  
sponsorship plan too.  So maybe we wait until they are in place.   
Between us 200 people would not be too much of an issue.  David's  
company have French and German covered, we can do English, and if we  
can get someone to do Spanish then I think that would probabaly cover  
the vast majority of the list.

Just at the end of the sprint we setup an openplans project to co- 
ordinate this.  It is a private group, mainly as we might be  
discussing sensitive information on here.
