Weekly Planning Meeting, 11/14

Highlights 11/14:

The big congratulations this past week go to hill, who got garbage 
collection working in tuples.

Congratulations also go to roger, who was able to retrieve a 
whole (though very small) Xanadu document and display it as composited 
text, and to roland, for adding permit/require to xlint. 

Meetings: Goodness! We seem to have wiped out most of the meetings. 
Ravi, dean, talk about ent interface. Roger, hugh, dean, discuss 
system independent attributes for the frontends.
