Weekly Planning Meeting, 3/13

Highlights 3/13:

The big congratulations this week go to ravi, who completed the 
last pieces that we know we need to support a First Extremely 
Limited Integration of AutoCAD and Xanadu. No one should hold 
their breath waiting for the actual integration, however: things 
are pretty hectic in AutoCAD land these days, with matters of 
considerably greater urgency than our extremely limited integration.
Ravi will be talking with Greg to find out what other pieces we
need to build for the integration; I'm sure we're missing a 
couple :-)

A late-breaking big congratulations goes to hugh, who has a LinkEnd 
window working: you can turn selected regions of text into LinkEnds, 
set their descriptors, and run a link between them. One hitch 
currently remains: hugh found a bug in filtered backfollow, so 
you can't see the link after you've created it. But it's there, 
we are quite sure :-) 

Meetings: Roger, rick, discuss scheme upgrade. Hill, roland, 
look at another crutch problem. Michael, marcs, cache link at 
both ends. Markm, find Z-stip paper for rick. Ravi, dean, rick, 
markm, unify view builder and waldo maker. Hill, Roland, michael, 
discuss crutch.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 Tuesday. Michael, dean, markm, ravi, efficiency of internsets.
