I agree that infrastructure is an important part of the Galaxy India
initiative. Although, in my opinion. it would be okay to initiate
discussions with potential projects while mentioning the upcoming server
Looking forward to discuss with you next week.

Great to see some developments and new inclusions. As of now I'm more
concentrating in getting an infrastructure for Galaxy India server. As of
now trying to contribute to the training network of Galaxy. It could be
possible that I could visit India next month and would also try to meet
potential infrastructure providers. As of now nothing is concrete and
trying to gather resources.
Probably our first target could be provide infrastructure for the training
sessions which is going to be provided by Anshu and Pratik. Would like to
talk to you both during next week.
