Jody,

I appreciate your shepherding the Linux/NOID server space to fruition.  Nice to have friends in high places.

I don't know why Jen Short was not invited to the last Scholarly Commons update meeting; I should say that I was unaware of that situation until this afternoon.  Mark Lane's methodology has been to meet with the Breeze team piecemeal, with those of us involved in the metadata design (Laura and the undersigned) meeting a couple of times early in the process.

Steven

I'm not sure why some recipients received an unintelligible version of my message, since it appears just fine in the list archive:

But it is replicated below in any case. Thanks, Roy
