I'll probably be involved in the implementation planning, but we haven't really gotten as far as talking about that.

Tom was very generous with crediting me as the task force chair and the person who did most of the writing as we wrapped up our requirements gathering and proposed solution selecting, though I admit some of this work was not as timely as it should have been.
