Seminar room

Meeting expected to start at 10:30am in Manchester at John Rylands, there are two exceptional items. Chris has suggested that we have a link call regarding the outcome of Chris and Mike's meeting in Paris. It is proposed to hold this by phone at 2 p.m. QRpedia is also worth debate and RB intends to absent himself for COI reasons. Andrew and Roger have to leave at 4. A tour of the library may be available.
