It seems like a fair number of people are interested in this, so:

Wednesday, July 12, 8pm (location TBD). Look on the notice board and  
on this list for details.

A few additions below. Obviously, we're not going to be able to cover  
everything in detail, but it would be great if we could have a  
general discussion of #1, try to find victims to push the various  
errata to conclusion on the list (rather than trying to solve them  
there), and then pick through the related work as peoples' interests  
dictate.
