Highlights
Unsurprisingly, preparations for the St. Croix meeting accounted for
most of our time and effort in March. 

Content topics in progress:
  Conjugation (Midori, Jane, Val Wood, Nick Thomson, SGD & TGD
    curators)
  MetaCyc and GO consistency (continued: includes metacyc2go mapping) (Amelia,
    with TAIR curators, esp. Peifen Zhang and Christophe Tissier,
    MetaCyc curators, and some interaction with Enzyme db)
  Various topics having to do with protein complexes (also see meeting
    agenda)
  Unofficial metamorphosis interest group formed at EBI (Jen and
    various EBI staff; they don't want to be listed on the web page
    for the time being)

Content topics resolved:
  Several small things for SourceForge items

OBO-Edit working group update:
  Official release of OBO-Edit has been held up by a few bugs
    (including one in beta16, which we'd thought could be released
    until we detected the bug)
  Formulated plan for completing the User Guide (most recent IRC
    session)
