Hello all,

I personally would be more interested in the technical aspects than the
non-technical ones.
But I don't see many unique African issues here.
Maybe we could filter/evaluate all papers, initiatives, BCPs available.
And then I believe once we have some picture what's "best" we have a 
big job of advertising that and sensitizing operators.
Just my 2 shillings...
PS: personally I believe there's a solution (not final though)  with and
despite SMTP....
