Great, thanks.

As you know, the sound quality is such a specific concern to me that
it even turns up in my dreams -- without workable solutions.  I wonder
if there are any ways to improve this?

A general remark:  Given the fact that we will look at these minutes
in the next meeting, trying to remember or figure out what was meant
by this or that, I think it would be helpful to have the action items
containing enough descriptive prose so that we will be able to
understand them 2 months from now.  This for example, is tough:

SB	 write up a summary to Council, if possible with a specific proposed mechanism which would be instituted if there were no objections. 	2006-11-07

As to this:


The first was for Council members to scan the list SB produced looking
for obvious errors or elements of concern. The second was to produce a
schema that makes use of the ‘limited phrase’ class, and for Council
members to use this schema and large quantities of data looking for
problems. Council chose the former method, without ruling out use of
the latter later ([?...??] did I get that right? —SB).
I think we did in fact also want to enact the latter, which is why you
got the next action item.
"Create an implementation of the new ‘limited phrase’ system using the
elements in the refined version of the list."
