Subject: Re: [chairs] updates Kavi status

Yeah, unless the "share" permission is set for the docs then they won't 
be publicly visible. I've asked Kavi to fix it so that I can make this a 
permanent setting.

The bigger issue from Norm, to which Davis makes a suggestion of a 
workaround, is the overall handling of large numbers of documents. As 
I've mentioned before, I've been working (off and on) on a design for a 
doc mgmt system that would provide us with some additional 
functionality. (I started gathering requirements last spring.) When I 
get closer to having a completed design I'll send it out for some 
additional feedback from you.
