Hi all,

Congratulations to all involved in getting the DTLS profile
document done and through the process.

Now that that's done, and given that the originally planned
work on group communication hasn't progressed as planned (due
to us discovering that it was trickier than we initially
thought), I think it's time for the WG to evaluate whether
it's time to declare victory and close the WG, or if there's
some other work to be done.

In chatting with the chairs, we figured that perhaps now is
time to declare victory, but of course that's a topic to talk
about here, so please send your thoughts on the topic to the
list in the next week or two and the chairs and I will see
where we think things are at.

Cheers and well done again,
Stephen, Dorothy ad Zach.

PS: The list can remain open even if we do end up closing
the working group if that's useful.
