Hi David, Gaelle,

I am glad that we all agree that the technical discussion is needed
and can go forward.

On the IPR issue, my understanding is that Robert will call for a
sense of the room on who believes that they have enough data now to
make decision and, if not, what exactly is needed.  That will occur
*before* any discussion on which will be chosen.  I am confident he is
aware of the discussion on the list to date from those who are already
indicating their preferences to wait for more information, but I have
cc'ed him explicitly on this message so he can confirm.

As noted before, none of the chairs will be making the calls related
to the codec question.
