I'm following-up on getting this Friday meeting locked down.  Many of  
you have responded already to the doodle poll but the results are  
mixed.  I really want to get the last few folks to go to the website  
and add their availability.  The folks I'm still waiting to hear from  

- Trent
- Drummond
- Eve
- Iain
- Jose Luis
- Philippe
- Prateek
