Hi Ole,

In my opinion those kinds of decisions belong to all of us. Consensus.

Anyway, I was not talking here about the recent decision but about taking now a decision about Madrid in July.

Someone send me a private email (suggested to send to the list) that effectively shows that the virus is not resistent to heat, so as much as we move towards spring/summer, less chances to propagate. Of course, we should not ask to have the meeting rooms freezing!

I still think that anyone taking a decision instead of following the host country recommendations is arbitrary. We just disagree.

    With all due respect, the decision was not “arbitrary.” As has been explained
    repeatedly, the cancellation was more of a “side-effect” of Covid19 rather than
    a major concern about the health risk of our attendees. This “side-effect” was
    explained in the announcement: 
    "This decision is based on input we gathered from Working Group (WG) and Research Group (RG) chairs about our ability to hold productive WG and RG sessions at IETF 107.
    Our assessment of this feedback is that a majority of sessions would not be viable if we were to hold the in-person IETF meeting. On this basis, we believe we cannot hold an effective in-person meeting.”
