 Hi folks!

 So I'm back from Seattle, LWCE is over, and I have officially run out
 of excuses not to start writing my content for the Mini-HIG.  I have
 also run out of excuses not to start acting like a project lead and
 bothering y'all as to how things are coming.  So please send me (feel

Well, I held off on responding to this because I don't like talking
about vaporware, but I'm going to do so anyway... I'm going to try and
get the menu principles section committed tomorrow morning along with
a slightly modified standard menus section. I also have a few hundred
words on layout, but it'll need more work before it's presentable.


BTW, the reason I asked for updates is that it's generally really important for a project, and specifically for a project lead/manager, to have an idea of what's happening well before work is actually done, so potential problems, etc. can be identified early. If we always wait until the work is done, it's much more difficult to solve problems.

So it's really not so much "talking about vaporware" as just making sure that somebody (namely me :) has an idea of the big picture of what's actually going on. Which is, IMHO, an important part of any successful project. :)
