Nothing in the workshop announcement says that it "aims to do what this group is working on". It is on the same topic, but the aims are completely different and, as Kenny points out, the timescales are vastly different.

The descriptive work that the RG has done in the last six months about comparison of EC proposals would be great input to the workshop. Beyond that, the CFRG's aim right now is still to give the TLS WG something to work with, a few months ago.
