answer to that question is "after Lyonesse" but can we get a better idea 
than that? 

Well, from my standpoint, the gathering together of staff has already 
started. And to nail down a date that we will get a date, find a site, 
etc. is last week. There have been many postings discussing getting a 
date, who will sponsor the event etc. on this list. HOWEVER, none of 
this will mean anything if ALL of the groups do not have a chance to 
discuss this idea. Although there has been a great deal off discussion 
on-line, there has been zilch discussion off-line. Therefore, all 
activities are really in the _let's talk about it_ stage. And as soon as 
all of the groups get a chance to discuss it on- and off-line, it will 
remain at that stage.

Acceptable for what? :-)

things moving? 

Yes, does the populace of the region, not just those of us on-line, want 
to do this?

I agree, however, just like the name for the region, and the idea of a 
principality, we absolutely must have input from as many people as 
possible before we go running off into wherever.

Ivar, trying to get ready for Lyonesse, and lots of other stuff, too,
