Hi,

well, this is a result of re-org of Mobile IP working group
in general. Yes, there was an informal BoF at Vienna which
was the trigger for producing this charter. The Mobile IP
chairs are perhaps better historians for you :-)

And, I do not know how you got subscribed as such, but
I hope you will find this interesting. The charter discussion
is open for everyone subscribed to this list.

Best,

-Rajeev
