Subject: Official release: Report of the CODATA workshop, SADC

At the recent Berlin 4 conference I made mention of the CODATA SADC
meeting's executive summary and recommendations which were awaiting
official release. That report is now officially released and
available, and is important since
 1. apart from its being a CODATA document in collaboration with
    the South African National Research Foundation and any sway
    that that would hold
 2. it arises from the Southern hemisphere
 3. makes important recommendations vis-a-vis mandated access to
    data and information.
 4. and speaks of policy interventions by funders in
    their requiring self-archiving
I've tried to access this final document so as to verify that the
version I have of a month ago corresponds to this officially
released one, but the web site had some tech diffculties. In the
meantime see key excerpts as blogged at
