After chatting with Susmit about this it doesn't appear that we can
solve the problem there by throwing media or money at the region.
Basically, if we provided X it would be consumed and another X would
be needed. So some structural change is necessary to fundamentally fix
things and he is working on that now as he has described in another
thread recently.

So I am out of ideas about how the board can help beyond giving us
some moral support. :)
We do appreciate that.
