Hello folks,

we have just submitted a draft that tries to summarize many discussions
about possible effects (and side-effects) of P2P traffic localization:

The document is very early and the conclusions may be controversial; any
comments, feedback and contributions to improve it will be greatly

Apologies for cross-posting, I'm sending this email to all the lists
where some of the discussions happened; please consider addressing any
follow-up to p2prg only.
