March was Qualis Time

no, not quality time. (haven't had that for ages...)

QUALIS is the system CAPES (a Brazilian funding agency) uses to measure the quality of pos-grad programmes. Since they classify journals, it ends up being an unofficial yardstick to measure all research produced in the land. Some Brazilian logicians realized that the classification was very arbitrary and we had a petition to try to influence the official arbiters.

Getting a petition going and some small amount of consensus on the classification of journals was very hard.
