Weekly Planning Meeting, 12/4

Highlights 12/4:

The big congratulations this week go to...umm, well it was
a pretty slow week, looking at our list of accomplishments.

Nonetheless, congratulations go to dean, michael, chris,
and roland. Each of these people made progress on tasks
needed to write to the disk. Indeed, progress is good
enough so that we think it may lead to a link-and-run of
disk writing in the next couple of weeks.  

Meetings: Rick, hill, look at documentation. Michael,
hill, merge  versions of cpp in front of formic. Markm,
chris, dean, ravi, revamp protection category
declaration.Chris, markm, documentation walk through.
Markm, et al, should class methods be translated to static
member functions, and consider the convert mechanism.
Roger, marcs, trn news. Dean, marcs, gnu C++ 3.0. Markm,
michael, et. al, hiding virtuals. Roger, ravi, where font
info lies.
