Alright chaps this is pretty last minute as I have to chat to the guy from
Manning tomorrow so if anyone has 5 minutes, can you scan:
https://docs.google.com/document/d/1dGVf0j25WzXZCyTyuX9aMmmQ06yAPLOFtuTFZe-0aXk/edit?usp=sharing
and add anything you think is missing. The link is open to all so you
should be able to add/change entries, just italicise them or something so I
can spot them.

Thanks

Tom
