Subject: Re: BPM not in alignment


I have added this on Tuesday at 11:00. To spark an interest - I do not
necessarily think that it is out of scope. The fact that someone is doing it
today is true for everything we are doing with the possible exception smart
core components.

Regarding your second point I am not sure I understand it but it looks like
something that Core Component is already addressing. Regardless - give me a
good agenda title and I will add it. Is Wednesday 10:00 good?
