Hello Tim,

It sounds as though we are going to have some lively discussion
between you and Anders. Hopefully the money allocated for the
"wavelet" section of the work will assist the evaluation of its
scientific significance rather than duplicate software which
already exists. There is 5000 Euros allocated for a student
between you and Keith -- I'm not sure what Keith has in mind
as it was all arranged in haste.

We do have an opportunity to make minor changes -- I'm not sure when
the deadline for these will be, but I'm expecting it to be
early next week (BertJan is on holiday, so we can't get any more
information for the moment). I don't think we can change the make up of
the consortium, or resolve any scientific disagreements at this
stage -- doing the latter is the main objective of the project.
