Planning Meeting, 7/4


The big congratulations this week go to hill, hugh, and markm. 
Hill has implemented episode scavenging, a major part of the 
memory reclamation system. As a consequence, the waldo test program 
only chews up 300K of RAM now, whereas it used to chew up 1.5MB.

Hugh has text editing running from the Mac frontend to the backend, 
excluding the paste command. And markm has completed the C++ 
interfaces to the document layer so that roger and hugh can kick 
it around.

Congratulations also go to roger for completing class definitions 
for textedit on the Sun.

Meetings: Dean, hill, discuss constructors for C++. Markm or 
hill needs to discuss merkle hashing with michael. Roger and 
marcs need to discuss hypercard XCMDs. Marcs, michael need a 
followup meeting on the PERT. Dean, michael need a fluid variables 
followup. Markm, talk with robin about backfollow of endorsed 
objects of specified type.

The most important meeting is this coming Sunday, starting about 
11AM, to interview Ravi Pandya as the PC programmer.
