Dear workshop participants and others--

Now is the time to start thinking about possible workshop projects, if  
you haven't done so already.  You do NOT have to be a workshop  
participant to help in the process of developing and discussing ideas.

Please consider adding an idea on the "ideas" page here (you just need  
to get a TDWG twiki account):


The two ideas listed currently are:

  * Create benchmark of annotated pubs relating phylogenies and  
  * Sharing the tree of life: What can we learn from the re-use (and  
lack of re-use) of mega-phylogenies?

I have cc'ed this message to the tdwg-phylo list and to some  
individuals who indicated their intention to participate.  However,  
please address your replies only to the miapa-discuss list.  Those who  
want to join in discussion will need to join the list.

On behalf of the workshop organizers (Jim Leebens-Mack, Hilmar Lapp,  
Nico Cellinese, Enrico Pontelli),
