The big congratulations this week go to dean/michael, hugh, rick,
and paul. Hugh got fm compiling on the Mac, and has a mockup
of the Tapestry link pane under smalltalk using fm. Paul has
semaphores working for Montage; rick has the notifier working
even in the presence of errors (so we can use notifiers now to
notifiy us of errors :-). Most unusual, Dean and michael not
only eliminated rest homes (a critical performance improvement),
they performed a critical management task.
What's this, you say? A management task? Yes: dean and michael
figured out how to break up the write-to-disk problem so that
we could have more people work on it simultaneously. Thank you
very much, guys :-)
I and mr. hill would like to thank roger for an insightful proposal
on merge policy: when someone needs to make global changes to
the system, rather than trying to merge an image with those changes,
go work with mr. hill directly on the "official" source.
Meetings: Bill, marcs, discuss 4.1 upgrade. Hill, michael, problem
in entries, indices being off. Markm, michael, et. al, hiding
virtuals. Hugh, michael, bugs in sets. Roger, markm, backup vlad.
Roland, michael, the return of a const parameter in C. Roger,
ravi, where font info lies.
