special thanks to Mike Gorse for scribing on no notice, and doing a damn
good job of it, too -- since mike is relatively new to the group's calls 
(although his recent attendance record is better than mine), he noted in 
the minutes from the 13 May 2008 Open A11y call that he was unsure of 
all of his attributions, specifically those which he marked in the 
minutes with a question mark.

please review these documents to (a) ensure that an accurate record of 
the meetings has been captured; and (b) to raise questions or clarify 
points made in either meeting -- as usual, please log any comments 
specifically related to the contents of the minutes by replying-to this 
post on-list.
