thanks, please see separate emails (sent during meeting) to review 
incremental changes to the source forge version

good - let's fix 1Jin, then try to convert to produce model 2 without as 
many errors, then finally make changes by hand as needed once the 
correct pattern is understood.

This sounds really exciting.  I recently posted some references to past 
work, hopefully that helps.

Joe has expressed some concerns about BVH previously that it was 
frame-by-frame based, rather than interploation based.  It will be 
interesting to see how you handle this.

OK - see note 4 below.

These are helpful but are intermediate.  As noted above,

- i await your next change or review of Jin and model 2
- we will fix all of the models to match all specification rules and 
best practices
- we will post all final examples in sourceforge in the Web3D archive above.

> 4. Preparation of SC24 Plenary & WG meetings (August 26th-30th, Sydney)

Charles Whitlock of ISO SC24 has informed us that a 3-month review 
period is needed prior to approval.

August 8 - November 8 is the ballot period.  So these won't be approved 
at the Sydney meeting later this month, but they are likely to be 
discussed, which is good.

KATS and other ISO national bodies are encouraged to review and comment 
on these NWIPs.

Myeong Won Lee will prepare draft slides about H-Anim for review next 
week's meeting.

Anita and Leonard are requested to provide the online link to the 
SIGGRAPH 2013 Report which has many useful, informative references.

The dates sound good to us.  Thanks everyone.

all the best, Don
