I was hoping we would get to spend some time on the call discussing the
third agenda item: who is going to do the work, but we ran out of time.

I could use some clarification on what work needs to be done. I'm
referring to this section of Jeni's e-mail from the beginning of this
thread:

I think I would like to volunteer to manage the test suite. But I want to
be careful not to take on too much, so before I do, I'd like to know more
about what this would entail. Does a test suite exist yet, or would I be
volunteering to start from scratch?

Etc. 

Thanks, 
Bill
