Behcet: OK, well that's fine, I kind of got that impression.

So what we'd like to know is who from Geopriv, in principle, would
probably volunteer to attend a location summit and report back to IETF
Geopriv (i.e. not me). So it looks like I'm asking the IETF Geopriv
members this question.

Please answer "I'll probably go to a location summit, and I'll report
back to IETF Geopriv," if this is something you think you would do.

Hi Dan,
  It seems that you are not familiar with how IETF works.
IETF Geopriv WG's charter is at:
which states that Allison Mankin and Randall Gellens are co-chairs. All
others are members of this WG. So there is no one to represent this WG
or the co-chairs and any member (which is open to public, including
yourself, i.e. anybody can be a member at any time) can represent
Geopriv WG.
