How's this for confusing
We can't even talk about CharlesM or CM since we now have two of each.
Using CamelCase I guess we could use CM and CMCN.

Anyhow -- Question to CMunat

Were you suggesting breaking the guidelines into 3 documents? Or just
regrouping along different titles?

I'm serious.

For all that I am not in favour of using the results of this to produce
three
documents, I think this is a very important step to approaching what we
are
trying to do. I agree that the difference between comprehension and
"device
independence" is a major source of friction within the group, but I
think the
answer to that is that we try to listen a bit more carefully to each
other,
and reduce the friction that goes with working on different things at
the
same time.

Cheers

Charles

  intersection is the source of almost all the friction and controversy
in
  this group. Also, I'd like to see a lot more focus on comprehension.
And I
  have some questions, such as, How do we measure success?

  I would at least like to take a stab at it. Is anyone else willing to
help
  come up with a quick rearrangement of the checkpoints to see what
something
  like this might look like? If it just doesn't work, well, thems the
breaks.
  But I'd really like to give it a try just to see...
