Peter -
  As per our charter and chair responsibilities Guus and I are working 
on a proposed agenda for f2f4 --   we expect to have that released to 
the group this week (Monday 23rd is two weeks before, so we are on 
schedule for the agenda).  Documents we're expecting have mostly been 
discussed - I believe there are no documents that aren't already 
actioned and in prep.  What we are more worried about is the issues 
that are open -- we believe the f2f will be a better place to get 
final agreement on the hard issues, than to get all the i's dotted 
and t's crossed in documents -- we do the latter pretty well by phone 
- but the former needs to be done before we can complete documents.
