                                  Preface

   These notes are for reference and recall by those in attendance of
   the NWG meetings.  No attempt has been made toward completeness to
   make this an understandable document for those not in attendance.

   The notes are ordered chronologically.  You may notice discrepancies
   for particular schedules and tasks within the notes; the
   discrepancies represent a revision of those schedules and tasks, thus
   those dates given more recent in time are assumed to apply.

   If you detect any gross errors in this report, please make
   corrections via the accepted NIC procedures.
