Though I'll be on the call with atendees momentarily, here are my

JS:  I think they do.

In terms of the slide sets that aren't yet available, might it be a 
good idea to change those references to "coming soon?"

One thing to consider, from a PR/communication standpoint, are the 
benefits and drawbacks of EOWG's launching a lot of documents at the same time.

I'm hoping these training materials can generate some "buzz," and it 
depends on how strategic you all want to be about that.

I intend to do my part to publicize.
