I like any and all of the name change recommendations. I'm glad we have=

agreement with intent on the e-mail... to date, no disagreement. Great!=
Lloyd,
or Chris, will you just update the standing proposal with this addition=
al bit
(pick a name from the list... pmOverdue, overduePreventativeMaintenance=
,
pmOverduePreventativeMaintenance... or be creative yourselves)... or sh=
ould I
rework and resubmit the proposal? I get the sense that hr group has not=
focused
on this yet (please correct me if I'm wrong), so I don't see any harm i=
n the
addition.

I certainly agree with the intent of the proposal. The name, however,
still looks strange. I believe that in Harry's original name the "pm" =
was
to represent "preventive maintenance". So the revised name really shou=
ld
be:

overduePreventiveMaintenance

How does this sound?
