First, if people haven't managed to teach Zakim about their phone number, there's a form [1] to add your number / name mapping (this will save you effort later).

As a minor footnote, the scripts are fairly intelligent, so there are some things that one doesn't need to do. If you're called into the telcon via Zakim (and have at some point done "zakim, aaaa is me" or "zakim, ??p1 is Josh_Soref" [2] (or used the form [1]), you don't need to do Present+, as Zakim does it for you (according to the name you gave Zakim when you introduced yourself) -- generally the present+ requirement is more for F2F where you *aren't* calling in (and thus Zakim can't help you out -- unless someone has done "Zakim, BallRoom has John, James", "Zakim, Jim entered BallRoom", or "Zakim, Jill is with James" [3]). Thus, the following additional lines are added by me to the end of my input minutes for scribe.pl:

Present- +46.1.08.01.aaaa
Present- AnssiK
Present- Cathy
Present- Claes
Present- Clarke
Present- fjh
Present- glenn
Present- richt
Present- darobin

The first one is because Zakim is a bit silly (that's ok), the others are because otherwise each of the listed people would otherwise appear twice in attendees (once in full form, and once with the short nick which I'm removing above). As a note, I now use a script (it isn't perfect, but it's fairly clever, I've been trying to send it out but that's been painful) which produces the following output:

Humans more or less perform the same magic when reading minutes or irc logs. It can complain about ambiguity, such as when sicking + timeless are both scribed as 'JS' (but only when we're both present+ by our real names) or ArtB and AdrianBa are both scribed as 'AB'. When it produces output that's confusing, I work to adjust the minutes so that this confusion wouldn't arise.
