I offered to clean up and post the notes if someone would email me a log
(I was on web chat on a borrowed computer, and don't have logs of my own
from the conversation).
The offer still stands, so if someone has the raw log from the meeting
Saturday, please email me and I'll shine them up and ping the lists once
things are there in slightly more digestible format. I'm guessing at
least one person on these lists will have a log...
