Those words did not come out of Ralph's mouth and Ralph says that he had no
intention of saying those words.  Ralph plans to document multiple ports,
not multiple paths.

I added the following sentence to this item: "Since this issue will become
moot should the HAP project be dropped (see next item), no further action
was taken."

>Regarding 6.5:
><<Bob Snively reported that there no new information is available regarding

The key word in the sentence is "new".  I've deleted a spurious "there".
The item now reads:

"Bob Snively reported that no new information is available regarding FCP-2.
 He indicated that he still hopes to have a revision 0 of FCP-2 ready by
the end of September, but not in time for the next committee mailing."

This is the same information that was reported in July.

Thanks for your comments!
