That is actually a really cool idea (sidebar on tool). :)

Sorry I've been lax on this - holiday weekend and I went down to
Phoenix a few days early to meet with some folks from ASU on our
process. :DD

I'll try to pop into today's meeting - I'd like to schedule one
meeting a week until we're done-ish. I think the list above is a
really great set and I have no objections at all to that.  If we could
draw up a schedule today in the meeting - I'll take that list, put it
on the wiki and get to work. ;)

Thanks everyone!
