*	Rudy (r937)
*	Scott (sgd)
*	Erika
*	Amanda

As agreed, or de facto?

As agreed (ie all former tasks, less those agreed to be moved
* Answering all email 'on behalf of evolt.org'
* Administration of all mailing lists
* Editing and approval of all articles on weo
* Approval of meo accounts
* meo information updates
* Administering security policy
all carried out by individual members of Admin by virtue of their
admin membership. Some tasks are delegated by Admin to specific
individuals (eg approval of meo accounts), some are group tasks
(eg answering email). All are however Admin's accountabilities,

(see http://www.evolt.org/article/theforum/20/15355/index.html

de facto
* Answering some email on behalf of evolt.org
* Administration of some mailing lists
* Editing and approval of weo articles
* Being everyone's favourite scapegoat, including that of some
    of its members.
