In response to the comments so far, I have talked with more than a few folks about the use of the term "share" for this group, as I have been very much aware of the IBM user group. All folks have stated that this should not be in conflict or confusion as it is very evident what the IBM group's charter is versus this charter. There was a similar conflict in the past with Steve Casner's WG, etc. The USV Area of the IETF is a second level service, not a "first level" end-user specific entity, as has been so since its inception. It provides a forum for ALL levels and disciplines of user, not just novice. This is what makes the USV area unique. Like other areas in the IETF, it encourages other disciplines/groups to participate (like SNANAU, Printer MIB, TSIG (CIPSO), TNSFS, etc.). The Internet School Networking WG of the IETF has been such an example. The SHARE WG is following in its path. These two efforts have been recognized in the "user" Internet community as being successful in the communication between the "technical" community and "user" community in networking in general. In regards to Brian's comments - your concept of a user-oriented forum running parallel to the IETF. I have been approached quite a few times in the last two years by folks who would like to see myself and the USV area create an Internet "UTF" (User Task Force) and separate. I do see this as an in process evolution that may be considered. BUT, I still feel it is very important, as the Internet focus is changing to a 10million+ user oriented environment, for the IETF to pay attention to this aspect and continue to recognize it. I am willing as an AD to continue to manage these efforts. In regards to Mike's comments...in the last round of this charter, EVERY SINGLE comment that was provided by the IAB or the IESG was reported (without naming names) to Scott Stoner at the Danvers IETF. He is aware of the Digital Library Project running out of CNRI and he stated very clearly to me and his group that is NOT in parallel or duplicating efforts with the endeavors of the Share WG. Joyce
