Weekly Planning Meeting, 8/15

Highlights 8/15:

Argh! How did I fail to get last week's planning message 
out until the next week? My apologies to everyone.

The big congratulations this past week go to hugh, who has the 
flat document viewer working (remember, I'm a week behind here--discussion of
the finishing of Alpha is for this COMING week). Hugh 
is slowly but surely approaching the point where the frontend is good 
enough so that I could write this weekly memo using it; hopefully, 
I'll give the frontend that kind of test in a few weeks.

Meetings: Roger, Greg, discuss copies of 2.0 from Nat. Hill, 
michael, discuss assigning nil destructors. Michael, roland, 
discuss parsing 2.0. Hugh, dean, markm, ravi, roger, discuss 
run & tuple protocol. Ravi, roger, discuss common view. Michael, 
please tell marcs and joel about newsSpeak on performance. We 
will hold a debating society meeting on Monday, August 28, on 
the marketing plan (that's a week from when this memo is getting 
posted, not a week from the time of the meeting).
