5-6 weeks, which works well for a press release. Need to get list

Discussion:
===========

  - The ATK press release for LinuxWorld. People were generally
    comfortable with it with the current modifications (less hype, 
    something to download, clear that the target is developers).

  - A press release for 1.4.1. Timing on this release is approximately 
    5-6 weeks, which works well for a press release. Need to get list 
    of enhancements to Leslie so she can draft something.

  - Email/CVS policy. Went over current provisions briefly, no 
    objections.

  - Membership committee. Dan indicated that things were moving
    slowly and we might need to add someone else to the committee
    to help out.

  - Apparently there is an opportunity to have a GNOME/KDE interoperability
    hothouse at the X Technical conference/ALS. Rooms and network
    connections are available, but someone would have to organize,
    make sure that the right people showed up, etc.
