Thanks for getting the ball rolling on this.  The dates are fine by me.  My
only concern is if we should allow longer time to clear up some issues.  The
meeting in New Mexico was probably a day shorter than it needed to be so
that a lot of things were left unresolved.  Perhaps it would be worth having
the official meeting from Feb. 1-3, but precede it by a couple of days of
more informal discussion with those who have the flexibility to go for the
whole week - not an official part of the meeting, but a chance to thrash out
contentious problems before presenting it for a formal vote.

What do people think?  I will set up a Wiki page so that we can start
conmpiling an agenda.
