Weekly Planning Meeting, 2/20

Highlights 2/20:

Most of the big congratulations this week go to bill, who has 
sensors working across FeBe. 

I said "most of the big congratulations". This implies there 
are other big congratulations lurking about. Who else? Well, 
by unanimous decree from the programming team...

Big congratulations also go to marcs. He completed an assessment 
of all 271 of the issues from the Capabilities Review. Whew! 
We all appreciate the effort, guy :-)

Congratulations also go to ravi, dean, and markm. Dean implemented 
ravi's region splay algorithm, among other things. Markm completed 
the work type selection code, at least a first working draft 
:-) Meanwhile, ravi finished sealing off berts & orgls with waldos; 
in theory, we won't ever have to unleash orgls upon the world 
(well, we'll check out the theory on Monday, when ravi presents 
the D&L layer :-)
Meetings: Dean, hugh, text selection. Dean, call Peter Deutsch. 
Marcs, hugh, discuss Ends versus EndSets. Ravi, dean, link lists 
and inclusion lists and fm. Roland, michael, discuss crutch.Michael, 
dean, the splay tree. Ravi, present Doc&Links layer Monday, Feb. 
26, at 11AM. Rick, present Tapestry, Tuesday, Feb. 27, at 11AM. 
Roger, michael, dean, types to compile the ent. Bobp, joel, marcs, 
discuss Apple and smalltalk. Marcs, dean, joel, parc place strategy. 
Dean, michael, structured debug on the ent. Michael, dean, break 
up the ent for the disk on Wednesday. Michael, dean, markm, ravi, 
efficiency of internsets. Roger,, hugh, dean, ravi discuss system 
independent attributes for the frontends  after fm does paragraphs.
