All, please read the entire note.
Firstly, I would like to underscore Brad's request below. As you finish marking up a section of the draft, write up the comments and forward them ASAP. Do not wait to compile these into a single "document."
Secondly, you should anticipate some lengthy meetings. At the end of this message is the rough agenda. Note that there are some meetings planned on Sunday and Monday. Expect that there will be other meetings that are not on the schedule, some running late into the night on Monday, Tuesday, and especially Wednesday.
Thirdly, please remember that our target/goal/objective is TECHNICAL COMPLETENESS!!! While it would be nice to have a document that is polished, attempting to polish it at this meeting and not getting the technical work done is spelled "irresponsible." Think of this, in terms of your old college writing classes, as the "final draft," not the "finished product."
Lastly, while it would not be appropriate for me to say "don't
come if you are looking for some kind of boondoggle," I wish I could :-). Please
come prepared for a week of hard work. Come rested. Come psyched to win this
mental marathon. Come prepared to HELP those who carry the majority of the
burden, the clause editors (the way that THEY want the help). Yea! Team!
