Any reports from today's USSC meeting?

As first noted here, the US Sentencing Commission had a public meeting scheduled for today, January 17, 2007, and the agenda here included an item listed as "Possible Votes to Publish Guideline Amendments and Issues for Comment."   Can any readers in the know report on any noteworthy happenings.  Are there any guideline amendments in the works to address the ugliness of the current crack guidelines or the apparent reality that the Booker decision appears here to stay?

UPDATE: A helpful reader sent me USSC proposed amendments to implement the Adam Walsh Act and some immigration reforms.  I am unsure if this means there is nothing planned from the USSC this amendment cycle on crack and Booker.
