Patrick et al,

I have some suggestions about the OpsGL slide.  While my suggestion doesn't 
change what it basically says, it does change the style somewhat.  You may 
prefer the old style, but having edited on OpsGL so much (too much!), I 
think it's refreshing to see some different words for a change.

By the way, this is in the context of our decision at Tuesday telecon, to 
move this slide to last (or near last), so that we can end with some 
immediately actionable "punch".

Proposed revision
-----
(see styling notes after outline).

* Operations Guidelines (think QA)

Appoint a QA lead
INTEGRATE IT -- commit to QA goals and scenario.
STAFF IT -- assess and assign appropriate staffing
COORDINATE IT -- synchronize QA and specification deliverables
PLAN IT -- the process for development, publication, maintenance
MAKE IT EASY -- use OpsGL's @@charter template@@ and @@process template@@

About styling.  I don't advocate upper-case.  But some styling to emphasize 
the words that I have put in upper case.  In the last slide, the "@@" 
bracketed phrases would link to those templates.

As I said, this is really a matter of style.  You could use the current 
words on the slide, and talk the latter words.  Or use the proposed words 
on the slide and talk the current words (or some hybrid).  My own 
preference is for the latter. Opinions?

Also, I'm sure the words can be improved.  This was a quick draft.

More later (about feedback slide),
-Lofton.
