Subject Re: in-person meeting

The dates are fine with me.

I have an agenda item for the meeting. Bill Pugh (who develops  
FindBugs) is in town and would be able to talk to us about how to use  
FindBugs to not only scrub the existing code base (lots of boring  
work to clean up the code) but to report on bugs recently introduced  
by commits so they can be rectified while still fresh.

Bill would be able to make a presentation to the group and then  
discuss the strategy to implement.

It could also be done as a straight conference call but Bill is an  
engaging speaker and I'd recommend taking some time to listen to him  
in person.
