yes the deadline is close and I was hoping to have some news for the 
board. The next report is due in a couple of weeks. SO I'd like to 
formulate a pla to migrate.

Vincent told me he added some new content to the CMS, but we have all of 
Glenn's changes for the 1.1 release to merge in.

I think I've found a new minor issue. The titles look wrong on this

After reseting my browser cache the scrollbar is now working in most 
pages, but it still appears broken for compliance!

I've retested and the expand/collapse seems to be working fine now :-) 
That's great work Clay.

Thanks Clay. Since the 1.1 release is expected this weekend I propose 
planning the move to CMS after that. I need help from the team to define 
exactly what we need to do. I could only come up with 3 steps since I'm 
not close to the technical details!

1. Merge in content from 1.1 release. Mehdi will tackle this next week.
2. Technical stuff to do the switch (Clay can you expand on what we need 
to do)? Do I have a volunteer for this?
3. Team to fix outstanding minor issues, such as IE9 scrollbar. This 
will be done on a ongoing basis rather than to a fixed deadline.

I don't think we should have a formal vote to accept the website in its 
new form since the reason for the change is a mandate from the board and 
the PMC can't go against that. Folks have had plenty of opportunites to 
review the new website by now and although there are still some 
outstanding minor issues we are forced to fix them later by the looming 
board enforced deadline.
