It is an interesting question on how the IETF will evolve. For example, at Bits & Bites, my team demonstrated a measurement system called XMAP that is based on the emerging IETF LMAP standards. We intend to open source that software, and use some hackathons to improve it in the next year or so. As it stands now, we’ll either use our own public code repository or partner with another organization (that may also have things like an ability to accept funds to continue support of the effort). What if, in some future state, a given working group had a code repository and the working group was chartered not just with developing the standards but maintaining implementations of the code?

    Do you mean "how to get open source implementations of IETF standards"
    or "open source people gathered at IETF conferences" or something else?
