    • Q: is this rather an IT circle topic? come back to question in IT circle meeting
    • log keeping an localization - how do we support multiple languages
      • network model
    • now SoFA English as delivery, infrastructure is for all, need to be smart about log keeping stuff, where to enforce it and where not?
