Weekly Planning Meeting, 11/13

Highlights 11/13:

The big congratulations this week go to hugh, ravi, and hill. 
Mr. hill has the server accepting multiple connections across 
a LANJ(though, uh, it still isn't quite robust enough for rick 
and the Montage team :-). Ravi has networking running under MS-DOS 
so we can hook to the server (though there's still a long, long 
way to go to having an MS-DOS application networked to the server 

And hugh has a minimal functional linkend window working for 
Tapestry. In this window, we maintain a list of link ends, which 
the user can mix and match into links as he sees fit.Though this 
is a simple and intuitive concept that does not need any of the 
special features of the Xanadu Server for support, it is nonetheless 
easier and faster for making multiple links than any method supplied 
by any currently marketed hypertext system. 

Even in the little things, we leap ahead of the state of the 
art :-)

Congratulations also go to markm and michael. Michael has the 
snarf handling code back up to, uh, where it was before the recent 
redesign :-) And Markm has started documenting for real. He had 
1% of the classes and methods already documented by the time 
of the meeting, and he'd only been at it for a few hours :-)

Meetings: Ravi, michael, transceivers, strings. Roland, chris, 
methods without message sends. Hill, chris, markm, packObits 
ordering. Michael, roland, a const test. Dean, michael, where 
to ask for hash value. Roger, forward const note from news to 
markm. markm, dean, hugh, italics in smalltalk. Markm, marcs, 
adjust rates for documentation victory bells. Roger, dean, hugh, 
ravi, fm update events. Joel, mlb, incorporation of factories 
in developer pack, for Key Logic negotiation. 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.
