A document starting to address questions related to cost was written,
originally to be presented to CFHT's Science Advisory Council. An html

A second meeting took place on December 18th/19th 2000, to follow up
on the project plan, discuss the scientific potential and review the
technical issues. Please see the

potential and technological
pictures of our `Ohana taken during the second meeting.
A meeting hosted by CFHT took place on March 16th/17th 2000, to discuss
possibilities, interests and motivations. A
was generated that establishes a 3 phase plan to proceed with such a project.
Also from the meeting:
During the SPIE conference, Astronomical Telescopes and Instrumentation
2000, a poster describing the current status was presented, along with
new computations for the expected
sensitivity of the array. Follow this
