During "committee" meetings here (when we are working via committee
to establish procedures and all), everyone attending the meeting is
responsible for taking coherent notes when its their turn, and we
*do* take turns. It's that person's responsibility to update the
minutes document and notify other attendees that the doc is available
for downloading. This actually has worked well in the past
(especially since some of our programmers tend to be anal and write
*everything* down, even when someone burps! <grin>)!!
