Dear John,

GO::DH has been an ADHO's SIGs for some time (I believe that it was the 
first to obtain that status). Last December, a referendum was called by 
Alex Gil (then Chair) and Roopika Risam asking the members of this group 
whether we should sever all ties with ADHO or continue negotiations to 
become a CO. An overwhelming majority voted for the second option (but 
please note that continuing negotiations does not amount to eventually 
becoming a CO, just exploring that option).

I have raised the possibility of a GO::DH series, but I have been told 
that, without an executive to approve of it, I can't go ahead.
