To be clear, this small and informal meeting will not be a meeting with
the IAB/IESG (if nothing else, a meeting with the full IAB + IESG would
not qualify as "small"!). I think it is best to see this an informal
get-together between (1) some proponents of clouds-related work at the
IETF, who seemingly do not have a strong understanding of IETF processes
and culture, and (2) some folks who have a lot of IETF experience and
wish to help the clouds proponents strengthen their "IETF clue". The
fact that some of the people in (2) happen to be currently serving on
the IAB or IESG is mostly immaterial here.
