Weekly Planning Meeting, 1/23

Highlights 1/23:

The big congratulations this week go to bobp and hugh. Bobp has 
completed a draft of the Systems Overview Good Enough To Clean 
Up For Wide Distribution. Hugh enhanced the translator so that 
C++ includes are automatically generated from the smalltalk.

Congratulations also go to bill, who implemented callbacks to 
support sensors in stubble.

A special thanks to ravi, who persuaded dean to not write the 
smalltalk change manager himself; dean has already achieved critical 
path status on both the backend and the frontend, he doesn't 
need any more paths :-)
Meetings: Hill, markm, bill, discuss converting to new version 
of formic. Roland, bobp, discuss ceran. Bill, markm, security 
hole in stubble. Roland, michael, formic versions. Bobp, markm, 
clubs. Markm, ravi, dean, fix premay semantics. Hugh, dean, cracks 
in fm. Dean, hugh, ravi, minimal fe task set. Ravi, dean, markm, 
meet for stepping through the backfollow orgl. Marcs, dean, joel, 
parc place strategy. Dean, markm, region splay. Dean, michael, 
structured debug on the ent. Michael, dean, break up the ent 
for the disk. Michael, dean, markm, ravi, efficiency of internsets. 
Hugh, dean, roger, generate includes in smalltalk. Markm, hugh, 
dean, visibility & location of pseudoconstructors. Michael, hill, 
roland, standardize stubble. Roger, hugh, dean, ravi discuss 
system independent attributes for the frontends on Wednesday.
