I'm not in Stockholm and I won't make it to Hiroshima; I don't have the financial resources to attend every meeting.  I am planning on attending IETF-77 in Anaheim -- we may be able to get on the agenda as an official BOF, otherwise we'll just setup a Bar BOF.  And certainly if others here are going to Hiroshima and want to represent us, that would be great.

I worked with Lisa to get this list setup and assuming we make progress, I'll continue to work with her to move us through the WG-formation process.

Completing our charter with our goals/milestones will be a huge step towards creating a WG; Lisa indicated to me that much of the activity of a BOF is simply to produce the charter with a list of work items.
