Hi again,

I should probably clarify that I'm *not* pushing back on you guys having a meeting in Prague and possibly later IETFs to see if a community forms. I will definitely approve rooms.

Take my comments as early feedback on the charter text you sent. The actual chartering discussion will happen after you've tried to meet a few times and we see what has happened in those meetings.

The IRTF tries to charter groups that are long-lived and try to tackle problem areas of substantial size, and I wonder if this is the case here.
