    Pete and I chatted on the phone and resolved his issue with Subunits
    structure (he accidentally imported the wrong element - my bad docs).
    Please pull down the updated schema I just posted (and unpack them
    into the same directory you put Pete's recent SM ZIP file) to view a
    sketch of SM/2.0 that integrates everything in WIMS/1.0 with SM/1.0
    (except for the legacy Job.xsd in SM/1.0 - see release note).
    Particularly, you should pull down and look at:
      - the exploded structured view of 'Server' from XMLSPY
    Oops, I see there's a typo in my release note for:
      - note the correct 'PwgSm' (lowercase 'm')

    On Wednesday May 10 there will be a Semantic Model Teleconference . This
    week we will continue focus on the updated straw man proposal for a PWG
    Semantic Model v2.0 Schema. Those of you who will not have access to
    MyMeetings access should have the updated schema available.

    If anyone has any items they would like to discuss please forward them to me
    and I will modify the agenda to include them.
