When should I have raised this issue ? Given that the agenda was 
published originally without topics assigned to days and given also that 
there was no subsequent notice to this list with regards to the agenda, 
I fail to see how I could have responded any earlier.

Again, how was I to know ? It would be a tad hard to comment in February 
on an agenda that was not settled until some time in April!

This is really not good enough !
