OK, fine. As I said, I have no problem with the spirit of this, just wanted 
to be careful to be clear on where the TAG stands formally on polyglot.

I will say that I think a discussion of "other seeming disagreements" is a 
bit broad. One of the reasons it's important that we meet in person is that 
there is lots of unscheduled time on breaks and meals for discussion of all 
manner of things, but for our formal sessions I find it's usually useful to 
have a bit more specific focus than that. I will schedule a session on (at 
least) polyglot. If you'd like to broaden it beyond that, or have 
additional sessions on other topics of possible disagreement, that might be 
OK too, but it would be helpful to have some guidance on the specifics. 
That way TAG members can consider the topics in advance, gather pertinent 
reading material, etc. and we'll have some idea of what success is in the 

I will also likely schedule a session, perhaps toward the end of Tues (as 
Tim is not available Wed) on general issues of TAG effectiveness and 
organization. I'd like to do that after we've had some time to try to work 
together F2F. That all sound OK?

Thank you.
