Sure. I will see what I can do prior to the meeting on Monday.

Not anywhere near a final draft but something that puts a stake in the 
ground which the TC can move back and forth.

To some degree it is hard to separate scope/goals from the issue of 
having the subcommittee. I would probably feel differently than I do if 
the goal was to re-write the Cyc ontology.

Suggestions welcome! Please post to the list.

Hope everyone is having a great day!
