As a matter of clarification (which I repeatedly made in our conference
calls) -  I am not 'representing' the IETF in any formal manner in this
activity. I am participating as an individual contributor. Of course, as
an IETF participant I am sharing information related to the IETF
activities that I am aware about.

	Agreed. If you want a good place to start, go to:
	We are already coordinating cloud work from the various
	SDOs there, and IETF is represented by Dan Romascanu

the discussion in the same group please. Thanks a lot.
