CGL 1.1 items merged into 2.0
Suggestion for updates to POC document every one month.
Mika would like to see document as an HTML file.
Rusty would really like to see distros involvement into POC.
Steve to CC mika when next contacting Redhat/Suse.
Julie said without distro involvement, priority 1 requirements cannot
be determined.  Solution is to verify that distros believe they can
implement OSDL 2.0 priority 1 requirements in case priority errors
were made in Helsinki F2F.

2.0 requirements
Decided to have techboard members to review POC references and provide
Gap analysis to be done after distro analysis and review by techboard
voting members.
Decision not to wait for updates to document before getting further

Tracking of priority 2 and priority 3 references
Decision to keep priority 2&3 references in seperate document form 
priority 1 documents.
Focus of POC on priority 1 document, priority 2 & 3 lower priority.

Jon Maloy put out TIPC 0.95
Diff between 0.94 and 0.95 700k
Erricson still desireing to make TIPC open source and will address large
patch issue.
Development web site / bitkeeper trees on OSDL web sites coming RSN

Kernel patch to buffer kobject create/delete sent to Greg KH and
Pat Mochel.  Software lives as part of linux driver model code.
Without software, several problems exist with using /sbin/hotplug
to handle device enumeration events.  Greg KH dislikes use of
character driver and believes everything can be accomplished
in user space.

udev modified to read events from kernel without fork/exec.  With
changes, early device enumeration events are captured.

On track for patch to LTP for next week.  Development marching along.
Priority 1 requirement schedule not slipped.
