Hi Ide-san,

Thanks very much for these excellent PCM slides!

Everyone - please post all presentation materials to the FSG OP Architecture
mailing list (copied above), so that the full FSG OP community can see and
comment (e.g., Claudia Alimpich, chair of Job Ticket WG, is not an SC

I don't personally have tools to generate final slides with images, but Norm
Jacobs (Sun, FSG OP chair) or Claudia Alimpich can probably help us.  We
should try to keep common look-and-feel to FSG OP slides, I think.

Claudia has already edited and recently posted the FSG OP Overview slides
and PAPI and JTAPI slides (which still need to be edited).

The FSG OP Architecture team will be performing more edits to slides at
our next teleconference on Wednesday 29 March, for review at the FSG OP
Steering Committee meeting the following week and final review at our extra
FSG OP Architecture teleconference on Wednesday 5 April.

NOTE - I have a serious conflict with Wednesday 5 April - I will be the
presenter at that time during the IEEE-ISTO PWG face-to-face, so I 
probably can't join that last FSG OP Arch teleconference before the
OSDL Printing Summit the following week.

- Ira
