Currently, the schedule looks something like this:

I will be going out fo town for possible up to 3 weeks ~17th of August.
Most likely returning the Wednesday after Labour Day.

It is my hope that after I get back, we'll have enough 'stuff' to make
some decisions about what should/shouldn't go into the final compendium.
Once that is done, I'll go through and edit it all into one large file,
write up some kind of an introduction, and that will be it. Then we get
to move on to the next book, I guess. :-)

In any case, that is still a month or more away. Right now, we need more
submissions (obviously) in addition to the completetion of the promised
submissions (myself included). Check of the index, see if anything is
missing, wrong or if you have any ideas to contribute.

Remember, this is fun.

These messages were posted a long time ago on a mailing list far, far away. The copyright to their contents probably lies with the original authors of the individual messages, but since they were published in an electronic forum that anyone could subscribe to, and the logs were available to subscribers and most likely non-subscribers as well, it's felt that re-publishing them here is a kind of public service.
