The CMMLbot annotations are a bonus from LCA and I am very grateful
that there were a few people taking care of it. Had I had more
helpers, I would have organised it better - but as it stood, it was a
quick hack.

We have some ideas on how to run it better in future. But again, it
will need a dedicated person to take care of it and manage.

We will try to publish the annotations with the talks on a CMMLWiki
site, but I won't promise it at this stage. My highest priority is to
get all the videos published as Oggs and the ones that were borked
transcoded from DV tape to DVD.
