Hi Keith - just want to make sure you let me know
(soon) if you can do some integration work on ALL
sections of 6.6, or if you'll need me to do those
non-temperature sections. I prefer you do it,
obviously, but if you need to leave some to me,
I'll find the time somewhere.

I'll remove the monsoon bullet from the exec
summary, but think we might have to keep the
section, perhaps shortened.

Thanks, Peck
