Agenda for X3J13

    Date: 10 Nov 87  1402 PST
    From: Dick Gabriel <RPG@SAIL.Stanford.EDU>

    As you know, we ran into a brick wall last week with the specification.
    The problem is with the question of how much the meta-object level
    should influence the format and content of chapter 2. The issue is
    how to decide what to say about the specification of a generic function
    versus what to say about specific methods.

    I think there is no question that this level of detail is worth
    specifying, but the question was how much to try to do before the X3

    It turns out that the very question itself and our initial consideration
    of it broke our stride enough that we will not be able to have
    an extensive discussion at X3 because we will not have coherent
    draft of chapters 1 and 2 in the hands of the X3 members soon enough.

    Therefore, the following have been decided:

    1. There will be no CLOS subcommittee meeting in Colorado.

    2. Danny Bobrow, Sonya Keene, and Linda DeMichiel will not attend the meeting.

I am going to the X3J13 meeting.   

    3. Gregor will present an overview of the decisions we made, such as
    initialization, class redefinition, etc.

    I'm sorry if this necessitates a change in your travel plans.
