I think that this is a good idea.

How about holding a BOF one evening at the San Diego IETF in March.
There will be Directory experts present for the OSI-DS and DISI WG
meetings.  Would this be sufficiently interesting for sufficent of the
WAIS people to come?

I am happy to co-chair this meeting with a WAIS expert (could you
suggest someone or volunteer?)

I suggest that sometime before the BOF, we should have informal demos
of WAIS and Directory for those not familiar with both systems.   

A suggested list of  aims of the  BOF:

1) To delineate scope of X.500 and WAIS/Z39.50 and note overlap

2) To determine possibilities for integration and co-existence

3) To make a list of possible work items in the area

4) To determine if it makes sense to establish either a mailing list
	or a WG
