Re: agenda for 1 August 2012 call

Hi Aleecia,

The list did not receive this agenda until 8:30pm ET last night. There's 
a long list of meaty and important topics here, including a propose 
definition of 'tracking'! It is not fair to the participants in the 
group to send this agenda late at night before a meeting, and then to 
just say that people should have had ample time to read and reflect on 
these previously. Even if people have reviewed these texts previously, 
it does not mean they are prepared to discuss and decide on them on a 
moment's notice. This has been happening consistently -- materials for 
calls are not made available until very shortly before the call. This 
makes it difficult for /all/ participants to contribute in meaningful 
ways. Please postpone discussion on these topics until the group has 
truly been given ample time to prepare.

-David
