I understand that voipeer was approved and the ADs agreed on 2.5 hours. 
  My personal impression is that if a BoF requires more than 1 hour, 
either the scope is too large or there has not been enough mailing list 
or ad-hoc discussion yet.

I think the scheduling problem would be easier if we restrict BoFs to 1 
hour in the future.  Active WGs should take precedence and this is one 
way to do that.

Thanks again Marcia for making the best of an impossible situation.
