Weekly Planning Meeting, 5/15

Highlights 5/15:

The big congratulations this week goes to ravi and hill and roger 
and dean. Ravi completed props and filters, the first major step 
toward completing permissions we have taken in a long time. Hill, 
meanwhile, was able to integrate a version of the system that 
has all the wonderful properties of the version ravi created 
last week, plus fm linked in as well (which required getting 
fm compiling, which was done by roger and dean).

Congratulations also go to bill and jacque. Bill got Sun OS 4.1 
running, so we can find out how much trouble we'll have with 
the upgrade. Meanwhile jacque has figured out how to update our 
Tapestry documentation well enough to have brought all the pictures 
up to date with respect to icons and scroll bars. (though the 
design has already changed enough to require new scroll bars 
in the flat view, so they'll need to be redone soon :-)

Meetings: Rick, ravi, bobp, using a Xanadu Server, 10AM Thursday. 
Michael, dean, ravi, disk transceiver the day immediately after 
Tuesday. Roger, hugh, reproducible Tapestry tests. Hugh, michael, 
finding changes in smalltalk.
