David Giaretta >> (All): Did you say in an email that you have been doing your 
home work
RobertDowns >> (All): Yes, I updated the section that I was assigned, B5.
David Giaretta >> (All): Is that on the Wiki now?
David Giaretta >> (All): OK I see it
David Giaretta >> (All): You did it so early it was not at the top of the list 
of changes
David Giaretta >> (All): Any problems?
RobertDowns >> (All): One question is whether we will need to further revise the 
sections to meet some of the general suggestions that were offered by email last 
David Giaretta >> (All): There were some formatting questions but I think that 
can be done at the very end. In fact we may be fine as we are. 
RobertDowns >> (All): That was the main question that I had after revising this 
David Giaretta >> (All): I was thinking of trying to get a copy editor to look 
through the docs before submitting them to CCSDS and then the CCSDS editor will 
check the formatting etc.
RobertDowns >> (All): Yes, that might help to make the discussion text more 
consistent across the requirements.
David Giaretta >> (All): I was also thinking about asking people to make sure 
they put up their updates by the end of the week
David Giaretta >> (All): make sure things are not left to the last 
moment and also to give people time to review the wording
RobertDowns >> (All): Yes, I agree that reminding everyone, with a deadline, 
should help to get the updates in place so that we can review them and identify 
any problems.
David Giaretta >> (All): So I guess that next week we should have something to 
look at
David Giaretta >> (All): ...I hope
RobertDowns >> (All): It might be helpful to send around the link to the page of 
assigned sections in case anyone is not sure of where they should be working on 
the updates.
RobertDowns >> (All): It would be great if we have more than one section to 
review next week.
David Giaretta >> (All): OK - and also to put a note on the Wiki page to flag 
that things have been completed and people need to look at it.
RobertDowns >> (All): I see that you updated the page regarding the status of 
B5. Thanks!
David Giaretta >> (All): Just sending an email out
RobertDowns >> (All): I just received your email announcement.
David Giaretta >> (All): OK - thanks for setting a good example!
RobertDowns >> (All): The wiki seemed to work well when I was updating it.
David Giaretta >> (All): Yes, it works fine after the first update
RobertDowns >> (All): I must have chosen the right time to update it.
David Giaretta >> (All): Yes.
David Giaretta >> (All): We'll have another meeting next week, alth
David Giaretta >> (All): ...just to catch up and make sure people have not found 
any problems
David Giaretta >> (All): .......and to remind them of their homework
David Giaretta >> (All): See you then
