Regarding the newsgroup, a second CFV was just issued.  Vote is sent to 

biovote at net.bio.net
biovote at daresbury.ac.uk

to vote in favor, send message:  YES on ZEBRAFISH
to vote against, send message:   NO on ZEBRAFISH

If the vote is successful, the newsgroup will appear under 
bionet.organisms.zebrafish sometime in July; the vote began June 13 and I 
believe runs 30 days.

If anyone wants to see a copy of the CFV proposal and can't find it, I 
would be happy to e-mail it to them.
