Hi Barry,

FWIW, most of the discussions rgd WAMP are happening on GitHub in 
comments on issues in the bug tracker there. On the other hand, I think 
it's clear that WAMP doesn't have the amount of participation (yet;) 
that WebSocket had - which is I guess obvious/expected.

Cool! Much appreciated.

Awesome, thanks for considering!

Sounds like having an active WG is just one option to get an RFC onto 
standards track, the other being direct shepherdship from an Area 
Director? (just want to improve my (very little) knowledge about IETF 
processes here - it's clear that we are not yet at this stage.)

Thanks for chairing and directing this WG! WebSocket (and the WebSocket 
permessage-deflate extension) is a very fine RFC, and the WG's results 
have been definitely worth all the work and heated discussions;)
