To further what Behcet stated, all IETF meetings must be announced 30 days
in advance and literally anyone can attend. So it might be the case here
where you might need to coordinate with the WG chairs (Allison and Randy,
listed below) on a proposed date of this meeting -- announce it to this
list and see how many want to attend from the IETF. There were 15 attending
our Interim meeting this week in San Diego.
