Discussed the complex types in COMPARE_AND_SWAP issue.  "Fortran Integer" category is permitted, but "Complex" category is not, primarily because of width.  Since "Fortran Integer" contains wide types, shouldn't we just permit "Complex" and "Floating point" as well?  Consensus was to stick with the existing text which permits only "C integer, Fortran integer, Logical, Multi-language types, or Byte".

Need to check implementation of various (4?) "flush is non-local" changes (Dave): https://svn.mpi-forum.org/trac/mpi-forum-web/ticket/270

After the above items have all been dealt with, all chapter committee members should re-read the whole chapter in the *clean* document (the one _without_ the changebars and colored text) to look for obvious typos and inconsistencies.
