Weekly Planning Meeting, 11/6

Highlights 11/6:

The big congratulations this week go to dean, hill, and rick. 

Rick completed another of those nasty but necessary management 
tasks: he finished a new PERT chart for Montage. 

Mr. hill published the next smalltalk merge, which was another 
of these real traumatic merges. 

Dean completely mastered the fine art of breaking a task down 
into pieces small enough so you can really see progress (and 
also small enough so you can really see how many little tasks 
there ARE, which is so critical to reliable forecasting of the 
duration of the nightmare :-) In consequence, he not only completed 
a lot of work for the write-to-disk milestone, he also completed 
a lot of separately identified tasks: 15, in fact. I'm sure this 
was even more satisfying to dean than it was to me, and it was 
very satisfying to me :-)

Congratulations also go to roger, who has Tapestry compiling 
under C++.

Meetings: Joel, mlb, incorporation of factories in developer 
pack, for Key Logic negotiation. Rick, mlb, marcs, priority of 
PC server. Roger, paul, news in xanadu. Paul, markm, hill, db 
networking question. Dean, michael, remaining divergence in snarfs. 
Bill, marcs, discuss 4.1 upgrade. 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.
