For what it's worth, maybe nothing, minutes of the previous meetings  
are available in the usual places for IETF minutes (for instance,  
ftp.nisc.sri.com in the ietf directory).

These minutes do, at least, answer in general terms what was  
discussed, such as an attempt at cooperation with the group  
discussing SQL over OSI.  And I, for one, would welcome a technical  
perspective on the NDB proposal from someone familiar with Ingres.   
This would be a good place to do it.

From glancing at the attendence lists of the workgroup meetings it  
would seem that there's no stable, critical mass to the group.  That  
may be one of the problems, in addition to the issues Mr Vielmetti  
raises.
