	No problem, by no means do I wish to be dictatorial! It would be
a good thing for those involved in the site to have a meeting to discuss
things like:

	* the creation of a list of things I shouldn't modify/update.
	* the creation of a list of things I should regularly modify/update -
          perhaps my "webmaster" role needs to be more clearly defined.
          What sort of latitude do I have in rearranging services,
	  information and graphics?
	* who is doing what to the site (who has responsibility for what
          pages/programs, what projects to they go under, etc.) The more
          I and others know what's on the site, the better I can do my job.
	* the creation of a Web posting policy - some method of defining
          whose approval must be asked before certain information is put
          on the site.
        * brainstorming on what features people might like to see on the
          site - interactive tours, WAIS indexing, other gateways...?

	What does everyone think? I certainly don't want to give you guys
the impression that I'm taking over everything!
