There will be an open-mic session at the end of the next ipdvb meeting, 
to explore whether the group has a desire to start work on new topics 
that do not fall within the current milestones and charter.

Here is my current list of topics, extracted from the mailing list 
discussions, please feel free to suggest additions, changes, or offer 
comments via the list.

This discussion will be used to determine the next steps for the group.

Best wishes,

Gorry Fairhurst
(ipdvb Chair)
