Weekly Planning Meeting, 1/9

Highlights 1/9:

The big congratulations this week go to markm and dean, who integrated 
the ent with orgls & berts and clubs this past week (as a sneak 
preview of next week, there will be a really humongous congratulation 
to dean and markm and ravi, for integrating enough of docs & 
links and FM, also in smalltalk, to get editable text integrated 
to the ent). This integration is occuring in smalltalk, which 
isn't exactly the path we had planned for integrating the pieces. 
But it seems to be working wonderfully, even after discounting 
some wonderfulness because we'll still have to translate most 
of it to C++. Anyway, both frontend and backend development should 
accelerate tremendously--already have accelerated tremendously, 
if this past week is any measure.

Meetings: Markm, dean, ravi, bring hill up to speed on what they've 
done to hill's life. Dean, ravi, markm, discuss work types. Ravi, 
marcs, discuss sensors in docs & links. Michael, dean markm, 
do vlad. Michael, hill, roland, standardize stubble. Roger, michael, 
bill, a working shar.  Michael, bobp, Mac partitions. Markm, 
give roger screenplay regression generator. Roger, roland, discuss 
formic & fluid variables. Version 2 of the infinity meeting on 
Wednesday. Roger, hugh, dean, ravi discuss system independent 
attributes for the frontends.

Anyway, this week's task list is as follows:
