  • Jason R. Kelly:The purpose of this meeting will be to discuss/better clarify the new account policy on OpenWetWare. There are a number of applications back-logged that are on the fence and I'd like to get them cleared up. Additionally, the policy has been relatively informal to date (maybe a good thing), and might be worth clarifying.

  2. Reject-view soruce email in UMS
  3. Flag users for watch list? technically feasible?
  4. Update the Join page
