I agree, believe it or not. And that's why in my email I asked the dc11
people to email their status updates to the list and use their status-check
time in the agenda for questions about those updates. That's the part that
took the bulk of the time during the January meeting, not the dc10 status
updates. (Well, that and dc9 stuff, but should be quicker this time due to
your and Anto's emails.) Admittedly this would have been more feasible if I
had sent the announcement sooner than I did....
