Hi Daniel,

that is great confirmation that now is a good time to bring these efforts together.
Do you know the people who are driving this?  Are they aware of how they could be contributing to the IETF?  Could they be convinced to contribute to an IETF effort?  Who should talk to them about this?

Grüße, Carsten
