Weekly Planning Meeting, 4/10

Highlights 4/10:

The big congratulations this week go to joel and markm. Markm finished 
the new regions code and crossed coordinate spaces, while joel finished 
the second draft of the new information packet. I have reviewed joel's 
new packet, and I must say, this is a wonderful improvement on both the 
first draft and on the old packet--it packs a lot of punch. I'm eager to 
start sending it out.

Congratulations also go to ravi, hugh, and dean and roger. Ravi has Docs 
& Links compiling in C++. Dean and roger have 43 of the 45 classes in fm 
compiling in C++. Hugh can now backfollow for documents as well as 
links, though the result is not quite yet visible in the link pane.

Special condolences in addition to congratulations go to rick, who 
completed the first round of PERT charting for Montage. Programming is 
phenomenally more fun, isn't it? :-)

Meetings: Bobp, marcs, discuss resources for finishing documentation. 
Ravi, bill, discuss C++ interface to the backend. Hill, ravi, discuss 
X++ for rick. Roger, dean, ravi, et. al., names on methods. Hugh, dean, 
roger fm event code. Hugh, michael, finding changes in smalltalk. Dean, 
marcs, call markm to call randy. Rick, ravi, interface through sockets. 
Hugh, marcs, next task selection. Markm, call randy smith for rick
