Randy (cc CGL) -
Here's a summary of what we discussed today re: validation subgroup's role
in the evaluation of Timers implementations.

The overall picture is that Geoff will define the background, the POSIX
requirements, and why we need high-res-timers, Randy is writing the paper
with the analysis and is performing the engineering evaluation, and Julie is
doing the validation of current implementations.

Validation Piece
At this point, it looks like everything being worked on for POSIX Test Suite
directly maps to the CGL validation of Timers.  A conformance test suite has
been created (and run against recent versions of both Timers
implementations).  The next test suites to be created are:
- Functional - Verify full behavior of clocks and timers.
- Stress/Performance - Verify/Benchmark the behavior of clocks/timers under
various load conditions.

We hope to have these tests completed by mid-February, and then a test pass
can be run against the current implementations.  (This should fit within the
proposed timeline for the project of 1-2 months.)
