house tomorrow, so packing has taken some precedence. On top of that
I'll be gone for a few weeks at the start of June. Certainly,
conversation can continue without my active input.
I would propose that
1) people with an interest research cvs and subversion and come to a
consensus as to which they would prefer. I am hopeful that we could
have something in place by the end of June. (Of course, I may have said
that two years ago as well.)
2) a discussion of proofing and standards of proof for the altering of
data be discussed. I'm not even sure how to frame this issue.
