Weekly Planning Meeting, 6/5

Highlights 6/05:

The big congratulations this week go to ravi and rick. Ravi has 
documents and links running over the LAN  in smalltalk; the next 
step is to run the same way in C++. Meanwhile Rick hired another 
person for the his team, Andy Beals. The montage team is now 
within one person of being fully staffed.

Congratulations also go to roland, who fixed/enhanced stubble 
so that it could support rick in the building of the scheme interface 
to xanadu.

Meetings:  Hill, rick, et al, the trouble with malloc. Dean, 
marcs, markm, schedule stamp, bert garbage collection. White 
Space Committee, talk to chip regarding spaces and tabs. Bill, 
michael, NEWS versions. Dean, marcs, backup versus archive. Bobp, 
hill, ravi, cooling the Server interface toward freezing. Bobp, 
markm, should the simplified interface be in C or C++? Bobp, 
marcs, resources for documentation again.
