Given the name of the WG is "Stay Home, Meet Only Online", and one of the chartered elements is to:

- The cadence of meeting scheduling and the mix of in-person versus fully
online meetings going forward once the disruptions caused by the pandemic
have subsided. ...

I have avoided participating in this group as I assume it was founded and is filled with like-minded people with a predetermined goal in mind ... meeting only online -- it's right in the name.

I do not agree with people who want to move from in person to "meeting only online", the reasons to meet in person have been enumerated countless times on the IETF discussion list, yet the push to eliminate the in person meetings continue despite this. Who would want to have this same debate ad nauseam in a WG?

Thanks,
Chris.

I know that this should be able to be done strictly on the list; however, human nature what it is, it sometimes helps when people actually see that other people listened to them. This might still work if there was lively back and forth during a Q&A session, but I suspect for this type of work many people wouldn't watch the premade videos b/c they suspected it wouldn't move forward, and so there'd be much less participation during the Q&A part.

Lately things have been OK I think, up until IETF 108. For IETF 108 we didn't have enough time to run things the way we normally do -- 100m was definitely not enough time for us. For the next virtual, if nothing changes with the format (single session 100m max), we will be have to more limit who gets agenda slots, perhaps with some "if there's time" slots tacked on the end in case discussion times are not fully used on earlier presentations.
