I agree that [3] and [4] are not CEP's budget. It seems to me that it
belongs to the Glasgow organizers. At least it is up to the EC to
decide.

As for the report I agree. Only one thing. The EC should be aware of the
work needed to maintain the Web server. I am not sure to be able to
continue without help, in the future. It is OK now but the EC must know
that it is not because it is cheap does it means no work.

With best regards,
