Hello All,                                                                      
The doodle poll indicates that everybody can make it on Friday 12/9
2pm (I hope Brian can make it). We may need a bit more than 1 hour (it
would be good to discuss every item on the agenda, so please plan for
1.5 hours if possible). The usual call-in information is (thanks to
Dial-in Number: 866-654-6744                                                    
International Dial-in Number: 1-517-308-8226                                    
Participant Access code: 6086006                                                

The current agenda draft includes:

1) Adam's suggestion that datatype offsets have to be relative to MPI_BOTTOM    
2) disp_unit should not be fixed (one can create one window for each)           
3) allocate_shared proposal with MPI_Win_lock_all(exclusive)                    
4) ticket 300: https://svn.mpi-forum.org/trac/mpi-forum-web/ticket/300          
5) ticket 283: https://svn.mpi-forum.org/trac/mpi-forum-web/ticket/283          
6) Adam suggested: p23, 6-7 Regarding status, we should either say that         
   all fields are undefined (except for the error) or we should specify         
   all values, e.g., what about values returned for MPI_GET_COUNT,              
   MPI_GET_ELEMENTS, or MPI_TEST_CANCELLED? Replace "The values of the          
   MPI_SOURCE and MPI_TAG fields are undefined." with "All other fields         
   in status are undefined." -- Question: Would it be useful to set             
   fields for count and get elements?                                           
Additions are welcome anytime!
Some of the questions come from Adam's review (see comments ticket 270).        
I fixed several ticket 0 things in the proposal. Rajeev reviewed but            
additional reviews are welcome!                                                 

All the Best,
