Dear all,

before sending this note to the whole VOQL, the following is the plan
for the VOQL sessions (two) plus the joint DAL-VOQL sessions (another

As you can see, there is a need for volunteers from this group to
present things. In particular, the following are needed:

For ADQL sessions:
- Someone to present something on Region discussions
- Someone to present something on User Defined Functions definition
For TAP sessions:
- someone to talk on Metadata requirements

Those are marked as TBD in the schedule below.

There are obvious candidates for some of them, for instance:

- for Region: Benjamin (or possibly Pat) as per our last meeting action
- for UDF: Alex
- for metadata access: Francois, Pat and Alex

It is really important that you commit to fill some of these "holes" for
our group. The work we are doing and we have already done is very
important to the whole IVOA project, and I urge to to please volunteer
for some of these things.

In case you are not attending the China meeting, you might find a
possible substitute to represent your views.

I would like to send a mail to the whole VOQL list on Monday afternoon,
so please send me inputs by then.

Needles to say, should you have any other issue you want to
discuss/present please let me know.
