This was true for us.  We'd definately send a representative or two to a
DMSP WG.  We'd almost certainly send one to a BoF to help organize a
DMSP WG.  But we couldn't justify sending someone to listen to a short
announcement of a possible DMSP BoF.  DMSP may be drawing on folks not
yet affiliated with the IETF.

My sense is that there probably is enough interest for a BOF, but that
the interested parties were underrepresented in the area meeting.  There
might actually be more interest in the app area, I'm not sure.  Would it
help if we came up with a list of parties who say they are interested in
attending a BOF?  Perhaps that would simultaneously validate the
interest level and give us more of an indication whether it really
belongs in app or rai?  Does that sound like a reasonable next step?  --

Hi Chris,

To be honest, I'm did not see the level of interest that something would
normally have to do a BOF. This was just my reaction watching the room
and I would have to much more formally go and find out what others
thought but I really don't want to get your hopes up on this. However,
if you want to know more about how to have a BOF, another IBM colleague
wrote a good draft about what it takes. Have a read of
draft-narten-successful-bof-01.txt. I am also quite sure that Nathaniel
knows more than he would ever want to know about doing a BOF :-)

Hi Jon and Cullen,
It was nice to meet you at the RAI area meeting in Dallas. Thanks again
for the opportunity to present DMSP to the group.

After my presentation I talked to Cullen about scheduling a DMSP BOF at
the next IETF meeting. He mentioned that one issue was to decide if rai
or apps is the appropriate area. I think there's a rough consensus among
the folks participating in DMSP that rai is the right choice. Please let
us know how we can move forward in order to schedule a BOF at the next
