gail and joan,
I'd say this is entirely understandable, considering the late-stage
development of some of the most important content. I'd really like to
commend everyone who is working hard - both in front of the camera and
behind the scenes. kudos everyone! list-folk need to be patient as the
program comes into focus in the coming weeks. its a good one and its
only going to get stronger. if any of us know GNSIers who might be
off-list (its easy to forget that so many of our group do not overlap
this list) be sure to keep them informed if/when any pertinent details
shift. I know that Kapi is working hard to keep the website updated, so
remind them to go there to cross reference with the tentative newsletter
