No problem, by no means do I wish to be dictatorial! It would be
a good thing for those involved in the site to have a meeting to discuss
things like:

* the creation of a list of things I shouldn't modify/update.
* the creation of a list of things I should regularly modify/update -
perhaps my "webmaster" role needs to be more clearly defined.
What sort of latitude do I have in rearranging services,
information and graphics?
* who is doing what to the site (who has responsibility for what
pages/programs, what projects to they go under, etc.) The more
I and others know what's on the site, the better I can do my job.
* the creation of a Web posting policy - some method of defining
whose approval must be asked before certain information is put
on the site.
* brainstorming on what features people might like to see on the
site - interactive tours, WAIS indexing, other gateways...?

What does everyone think? I certainly don't want to give you guys
the impression that I'm taking over everything!
