I'm sorry I wasn't there; it conflicted with OLPC's weekly engineering
meeting.  I should be able to make the next meeting.

I don't think this needs to be voted on -- we can talk to Tony without
voting to decide to talk to Tony.  Let's do that.

Since we'd like to consider revising the third statement, I'll vote -1
on this motion -- my impression is that we don't all consider the
proposed wording ready to be decided on, which is a good reason not
to adopt it yet.

(Voting this way now doesn't mean I'd definitely vote this way again
on the same text in the future; it's because we're still looking into
revising the text, not because I find the change unacceptable.)
