Planning Meeting, 2/7/89

The main congratulations this week go to Hugh, for his delivery 
of a quick and dirty prototype of basic documents, inclusion 
lists, and link lists. Actually he was late; his deadline was 
to deliver a demo on Wednesday, but he didn't present it until 
12:01 AM Thursday morning. Thus Hugh has achieved a fully minimally 
missed deadline. Thank you Hugh for making inclusion lists come 
to life; I've been wondering how they might look and how they 
might act  for a long time.

Congratulations also go to Gayle, for her brilliant 
assault on PC Week. Gayle, Wednesday I received a call from the 
woman who reported a month or so ago on the upcoming Xanadu spreadsheet. 
I got the feeling she had been chewed on a bit by her boss, the 
editor. Anyway, I was placed in the wonderful position of being 
able to graciously accept her apologies. The retraction will 
come out either this coming week or the next.

And apologies this week go to Dean, whose success I failed to 
mention in my last weekly roundup--he had enfilades working in 
the smalltalk version. I have promised him it will happen again, 
though not deliberately (just as it was not deliberate this last 

Permissions and protections have survived the assault on their 
life made last week by the Director of Product Development, since 
markm thinks he can slip it into the bogus backend easily, more 
or less.

Anyway, this week's task list is as follows:
