Hadi reported on WebCT Vista 5 activities from an email from Robert

--Someone will need to spend some time working on this
--We would appreciate volunteers

We need to develop a protocol for testing.
        Do we want everyone to test everything or should we assign

We really need to have Robert to the next meeting.  Where should we go

We would like to have monthly meetings
--We may need to have more meetings during testing etc.
