Yes, it was discussed at our last meeting. We drew up a paper with
various ideas as to how/who/what etc and as John says we hope this
will be picked up by the new H&A group. There is a Facebook group
which records pealboard photos but this is less than satisfactory as
there is no order to it, some are not named in full and the quality of
photos is variable, so this would not be a solution
