Re: WDC - Updating procedure

I received an "Extracts from draft Executive Committee Minutes,
Arlington, VA, USA 15-17 July 1998" from Mike Dacombe.
 
   8. Medium- and long term-term development

   8.1 Committee on Electronic Publishing, Dissemination and Storage of
Information.
  A report by the Chair of the Committee, Dr H.D. Flack, was noted.
[[Thats very nice of them but I don't remember writing one. May be it
was the one from last year]]  The Executive Committee felt that it would
be useful to have links between the World Directory of Crystallographers
database and other appropriate directories. There should also be an
announcement in the IUCr Newsletter encouraging readers to update their
entries as necessary.

  8.2 Electronic publishing and SGML project.
  [[A report of what Peter saw in the USA and he told the executive. I
see no point in copying it here because I feel lazy. If Yves wants a
copy I'll fax it.]] 

  8.3 Applications and developments of STAR/CIF and mmCIF: report of
COMCIFS.
  [[Nothing much for us but if you want a copy, I'll fax it.]] 

  8.4 Internet Services
  It was noted that the Chester site received about 5000 request per day
[[Do we know anything about the mirrors?]] and the crystallographic
NeXus CD ROM project of Mr L.M.D. Cranswick was continuing in
cooperation with the EPC. This project involved the production of a
standar writable CD ROM for low-volume, low-cost distribution in the
Third World and contained extracts from Web sites, PC-based
crystallographic software, Web browsing software and some general
interest software.
