Hi, Chris-

I appreciate your enthusiasm and focus here.

I agree we need to get more structured in how we're managing everything, 
and define clearer roles and milestones. We should build on what we've 
already established, and make it more clear and discoverable what has 
already been done.

Let's talk about this more on Tuesday.

Regards-
-Doug
