Thanks for the quick reply. I'd hope that given there was a detailed discussion
on your last proposal that the "level" terms will not come back.
I understand the problems with more detailed minutes, I've seen some of the
responses in the past to more detailed minutes. However, it's a shame to loose
the history/reasoning behind the changes.
Thanks again for the response.
