I think you must have missed this one message:

No matter.

I don't think you need to reserve Zakim.  The calendar already shows that 
Zakim is reserved for the WG, 11-12:30.  Is that right, that we don't need 
to do anything?

No one from PTC will be able to participate.  But on the other hand, it 
looks like we won't be able to vote to request FP&LC.  So we just need to 
talk and clarify who needs to do what, and when, in order to prevent any 
more schedule slippage.

More later,
