  A number of people pointed out we need to tackle the core stuff
(foundation, big picture,
  meaty technical issues, etc.) Proposal that three key areas need to be

  2. What are the partitions?
  3. What are the dependencies between the issues?

  ACTION: 2001-06-22#2: Brian: Draft up these three points and post to

  ACTION: 2001-06-22#7: Brian: Do a writeup of the containers proposal.
