Sorry for the top post.  (Running out the door!)   

There were a number of volunteers in the Chicago IETF to help revise / recreate from scratch a remote hubs draft.   I was busy with other tasks but will get this going next week.

If anyone else would like to volunteer to help, pls let me know.     I have a feeling that we will end up doing virtual group work meetings every two weeks to get / review input.

 However, no matter what it says, there's
 remote participation with meet echo, without
 hubs. For instance, I
 participated (and
 presented) remotely in two wgs during the Chicago
 IETF, without "attending" any hub.

 What I tried to note is that
 the situation for part of the participants
 is such that remote participation is already

 in latin

 we managed to attend one or more meetings
 (that's kind of like "the
 to the rule").

 I must say that modulo issues with the network
 (which were probably
 local on my side), the
 experience was great, and I must say that the
 meetecho folks provided "online" help
 in a very timely manner (thanks!).
 There's room for
 improvements.. but in some cases they seem to be more
 about integration of local and remote
 participants, than with "bugs" in
 the tools themselves. e.g., as you've
 correctly noted, it would be great
 if there
 was a means for managing the mic queue, such that
 there's a
 single queue, that includes
 remote participants.
