Subject: Re: Minutes of 6 Feb Meeting

Thanks to all for making great progress in my absence.  Sorry to say, I 
didn't give you all a moment's thought while I was sipping Hurricanes on 
Bourbon Street. :-)  However, I'm now caught up on all the mail.

A few responses:

I will publish corrected minutes for the 23 Jan meeting sometime this 
week.  We can attempt to approve this version and the (corrected, if 
necessary) 6 Feb minutes at the 20 Feb telecon.

I'll be happy to talk with Bob about this anytime; I'm around all this 
week.  I also noticed that the use-case group was discussing whether to use 
XMI-compliant tools for outputting use cases.  Seems like a good idea to 
me, if the people on that group are in agreement and if the XMI-compliant 
tools can produce pretty pictures somehow.

My feeling is that "submissions" can be made at any time, and it's up to us 
to decide whether they're relevant and timely enough.  E.g., if there's a 
tough design problem we're facing in the (say) Core Assertions area and 
it's May 15, I'm not going to look a gift submission in the mouth if it 
neatly proposes a good solution.

On a related note, it would be great if people could respond directly to 
the "Agenda" messages if they want to send regrets.  It's easy to keep 
track of that way.

I think an informal meeting on Feb 27 (say, of chairs/leaders/editors) 
could be useful, if it's kept short; I'm supposed to be taking a class that 
day and would have to slip away from it.  We can nail this down during our 
20 Feb telecon.

Uh, larger? :-)

Here are the things I plan to do by Monday/Tuesday:

- Publish results of the naming poll and start a new, final one
- Make a web page providing all the details on the F2F meeting/location
- Start the official Evite invitation to the F2F
- Start gathering all the PR/technical contact information
- Thoroughly review documents produced to date
- Talk to Bob B. about document formats
- Talk to Hal L. about issues list maintenance

Let me know if I'm letting something critical fall through the 
cracks.  It's entirely possible, as my brain is still operating at

This is another thing people can do by responding to the "Agenda" message 
each time, if they know ahead of time what their situation might be.

Let me add my thanks too!
