This is good for starting, Thanks Elfur. However, this speaks of evolt in terms of the sites and lists. We had started discussions of "other" areas evolt could move to. I think we need to broaden what we currently have written to encompass those things as well. And as we look at and refine the vision and mission statement we may find a few more things to do. Let's not rush this. We have good things in place and working. Let's take our time and do this pass at organizing to the best of our abilities (within a reasonable time frame of course). Ron D.
