Subject: RE: [wsia] Website Update

Hi Everyone,

What Graeme resent is the way I would prefer that minutes be posted 
to the list. You can see how it works by going to the wsia website 
and clicking on the link to the minutes.

It is much easier to update the website if the minutes are included 
in the body of the email. If you want to include a Word document as 
well, that is okay, but not necessary. Everyone will always have a 
copy of the minutes in their own email archives.

Once a month I will gather up all the minutes and upload them as 
inidividually downloadable files and as a backup, and I will add a 
link on the website to the index of the directory where the 
individual files are kept and that will suffice to let anyone 
download minutes by the date, which is always included in the 

If all minutes for all groups are done this way from now on it will 
significantly facilitate updating the website.

I will be working on getting all of the minutes for all the 
subcommittees/subgroups on the site and in order as soon as I can.

Also, Eric VanLydegraf sent a note about a broken url, which is now 
fixed. Please notify me of any problems you run into with the website 
and I will take care of it as promptly as I can.
