Status of Minutes: 


Re testing of D6 site: Walt almost ready to give a green light for testing. Will follow up with Josh, who needs to give go-ahead.

Re Images uploading: GW, Phil, and Daniel described their process. Seems like there are just 2 methods. Walt will search for something more 'sane' on D6.


Phil asked about location of Share feature (upper right corner); notes that it frequently gets accidentally activated when he uses the scroll bar. Walt indicated this is a design question that should go to Doug. Also Walt noted that he has a wide screen so scrollbar is not next to the widget and uses the scroll wheel for most scrolling so mouse never traverses the widget.
