tytso:	moving slower than initially expected, due to other time
	commitments and the learning curve.  "With any luck,
	it [kprop/propd] will be ready by next week; hopefully, my
	estimate will be more accurate this time around."

jfc:	is examining GSS code; disk failures interfered with his time
	commitments (his PS/2 AIX hat is high priority). will probably
	have some working sample clients (most likely on v4 gss
	interface) next week.

	stdio ccache coded & somewhat debugged; "seems to work".  Could
	use some better sanity checking; doesn't zero out file when
	hasn't yet looked into rcache thread stuff (partly due to no
	thread environment to do real testing...)

prb:	v4/v5 glue library is coded; he can link stuff and is debugging
	the sample/simple clients

don:	v4 kdc compatibility coded and in midst of a desk-check.
	on-line debugging to start soon.  some concerns about
	performance of various kerberos routines; profiling & metering will
	probably be in order. 

jon:	more looking around at admin stuff; considering retrofit of
	existing admin server core code, with a network interface of
	ASN.1 encodings of database entries & such.

bcn:	(guesstimated report) work proceeding on protocol draft, next
	review version ready ?next week?

		       SCO Files Lawsuit Against IBM

March 7, 2003 - The SCO Group filed legal action against IBM in the State 
Court of Utah for trade secrets misappropriation, tortious interference, 
unfair competition and breach of contract. The complaint alleges that IBM 
made concentrated efforts to improperly destroy the economic value of 
UNIX, particularly UNIX on Intel, to benefit IBM's Linux services 
business. See SCO v IBM.
