Agenda for TAG Teleconference of 6 Aug 2009

A somewhat tentative agenda for the 6 Aug 2009 TAG teleconference is 
posted at [1,2], and is available in text form below.  I have not had the 
time to prepare this with as much care as usual, so there may be some 
mistakes or omissions.   Also, I will be away from the office Tues & Wed, 
so any comments on this won't get seen until I return Thurs morning.  If 
there are any changes necessary I will make them then, or TAG members can 
bring up additional items at the start of the call. 

Overall, I request that TAG members review and update the status of open 
action items [3], as these will be the main means of structuring our 
discussions on Thursday and through the summer.

Thank you.
