Over the past six months I have had several exchanges of e-mail with Josh
Gourlay regarding the publishing of the symposium papers.  He told me that
they plan to publish them on the symposium web page, but that he was having
trouble getting the papers from the authors and did not not want to "push"
his volunteers "too hard" to get the two introductory papers he had
received on the web.  In early April I offered to help convert the papers
to a digital form, but Josh did not respond to my offer.

Like Darwin, I would greatly appreciate and enjoy being able to read the
complete papers.
