I agree, it looks good -- except for the (spam protected) email  
addresses. Why not combine the "form" with the email addresses into a  
(secure) form-mailer? i.e. a web form with the five fields (with  
appropriate space for each field) that when you click "submit"  
automatically posts to ctte and la (from the submitter = same ACLs as  
if from their client).

Following on from Chris suggestion for "more detail of successful  
grants" -- I would expect
<URL:http://linuxaus.k-sit.com/projects/grants/2006> to have at least  
a paragraph about each grant, and, if the grant work is complete,  
another sentence or two describing completion and pointing to the  
deliverable (if appropriate). This helps both in general  
understanding but also with accountability. Some of the deliverables  
have been reports on the conference, in which case a link to the LA  
email would suffice?
