Weekly Planning Meeting, 4/17

Highlights 4/17:

The big congratulations this week go to rick, who has his doc 
viewer working, and his list viewer, and his list controller, 
and his menu controller. Rick is pressing so fast into a position 
where he'll need a Xanadu to work with, it's delightful. And 
a special thanks goes to rick as well, since he saved the Autodesk-based 
Xanadians from the turmoil of moving to 3Harbor :-)

Congratulations also go to ravi and hugh. Ravi is running febe 
over the LAN now, and hugh has implemented the text attribute 
model (the text attribute model is a piece needed to answer one 
of the Top Ten Trauma from the Capabilities review, the issue 
with representing character and paragraph styles; yes, it seems 
we can make progress even on the most divisive issues in the 
list :-). 

Congratulations to everyone on holding one of the shortest meetings 
we have ever held :-)

Meetings: Bobp, marcs, discuss resources for finishing documentation. 
Hugh, dean, roger fm event code. Hugh, michael, finding changes 
in smalltalk. Markm, call randy smith for rick setup.
