Hi all,

I would be happy to help with this.  My inclination would be to start
small.  To begin with, I would be happy with a list of fibre initiatives,
the country, link to website/news articles, and some basic categorisation
of the network that we can evolve as we go.

We could start with an online spreadsheet or etherpad?

Cheers... Steve
