As a reminder to the group, we are a contribution driven organization, and we do have a fairly large project underway.  It should not be assumed by anyone that work will just get done without contributions to drive it.  Areas not moving forward will be brought to the attention of the Task Force for consideration on how to address; as such issues can not be allowed to threaten the overall project schedule.
