    1. How is the presenters' order generated?
    The presenters' order is generated from the presenters' list in a FIFO manner (but the list is initially generated randomly).

    2. Who is responsible if I can not present at the scheduled time?

    3. What should I do if I can not present at the scheduled time?
    As early as possible, let the group organizer (zhangp -at- vt.edu) know about your situation. Also contact other presenters to see if they are willing to swap dates with you.

    4. I have a question not listed here...
    Then ask by sending an e-mail to the mailing list (cvmlreadinggroup-g -at- vt.edu).
