Yeah, but 90% of it doesn't matter.

It really doesn't make a lot of difference whether you arrange the
furniture or hang the pictures first, but you don't want to hang the
pictures before you paint the wall, and oh yeah, maybe you need to put
up the wall before you can paint it.

In F12 there was so much clutter that we missed some key items. That's
why I'm focusing on getting the house built before I worry about
decorating it.


Okay. This is the first time I've heard this so as you can imagine it's kind of hitting me out of the blue. Are you wanting to start the schedule from scratch and thus remove the parts you consider "clutter?"

Can you clarify what you expect our starting point to be at Tuesday's meeting so that I'm coming with the right expectations? (choose one)
  a) Blank slate
  b) Re-work draft I posted
  c) Your version

John, are these all part of a master schedule with dependencies between
the teams, or is each team's plan independent?  If we can just get the
dependencies right we ought to have the dates right.

Both. Most of the docs tasks depend on each other, but often when they start is depended on other teams or schedule milestones. We've been trying to get the dependencies correct for a few releases... each time we're (hopefully) getting a little bit closer.

Thanks,
John
