    9 the ORBIT community.  There are obvious ways to game these policies in

    11 users.  Please don't.

    31 12 hours notice.  This will be done using the informal system we have in

    33 you're automatically approved at the moment your time slot starts.
    34 WINLAB staff will do their best to resolve conflicts in such scheduling,
    35 but please do not base your plans on having such time available in
    36 quantity.
