The goal is to come up with a solid document upon which the bulk of the
parties present agree upon and are willing to live with.
The format is "we've talked far too long, now lets sit down and make some
compromises and agreements." Hopefully we can find a good person to
handle the whip to keep us on track.
It's my preference that we do it as one unified group -- no subgroups.
It's going to be seriously hard work and we will each most likely have to
give up some of our strong beliefs in order to reach a compromise.

Don't worry, we are, in fact, going ahead with a meeting in Boston on the
19th and 20th.
We will be going into the meeting knowing what came forth from the rumored
We can accept those and have a party.
Or we can amend those if it can be done without destroying them in the
Or we will write new documents, if necessary.
Everyone is, of course, invited. Details of where it will be in Boston
are still sketchy since we no longer have a steering committee to arrange
things. I will hopefully have some solid information on that point
Everyone who comes is expected to bring along an attitude of constructive
compromise. We will be doing some hard work and ideas that don't quickly
fly will have to be shoved overboard in favor of other ones.
This is not going to be a meeting for observers or philosophers -- we're
going to need hard workers.
