  1. What happened this week

    I commented that there weren't many posts over the last week, and suggested that I post follow-ups again. zzorn pointed out that he had posted two items for review, but was only a few hours before the meeting. Bryce said that there are often quiet times on the mailing list at this time of the year.

  2. Finalise world structure

    zzorn's posts to the mailing list before the meeting were discussed for a short time and for a while so was templates. See zzorn's post for more info. PLEASE: help get this finalised, then we can start adding information to it.

  3. Finalise cvs structure

    This should follow easily from the world structure

  4. Another look at file formats

    There are several issues still unresolved about the file format of the (common) source files, the biggest is probably the markup and and amount of it. There has also been no firm decission on the file format of the high-level files (ie the file that imports all the others) for the duralsaur yet. This will be a follow-up.

  5. What should be done this week

    • finalising the world and cvs structures would be good
    • it would be very nice to have the Dural homepage fixed up
    • would be good to get the build system running

Next Meeting: same time, same place, next week (probably, tbc).
