not just WADI - but a wholistic approach to all Geronimo's clustering

Matt - I don't think that the problem was with sponsorship, but rather 
exclusion... (maybe I've misunderstood something?). Covalent are simply 
providing a room and beer. The invitation is open to the entire 
community and you will be driving the meeting. However, if you are still 
uncomfortable with arrangements, I shall ask Covalent to back out and 
I'll find an alternate route. The important thing is that we don't waste 
this opportunity to get together interested parties and discuss relevant 
issues, broadband... ?

So, should we ask Covalent to bow out ?
