As one might have inferred from the limited list activity since the start of the year, the STORM WG will not meet during the IETF meeting week in Prague.

Your WG chairs are currently (as time permits - my "copious spare time" has been in short supply) focusing on:
- Getting the MPA draft revised in response to WG LC comments.
- Ensuring that we have a pair of consistent iSCSI drafts (consolidated and SAM-based feature updates)

The latter item is the set-up for (at least) one more round of "What else should we take out?" discussion.  If anyone wants to start that now, that would be fine (hint).

Regarding other drafts:
- The two iFCP-related drafts are in the RFC Editor's Queue.
- We need to get the MPA draft revised and out of the WG before figuring out what to do about the expired iSER draft.
- We need to get through the "What else should we take out?" discussion of iSCSI in order to scope the work on the
	iSCSI MIB update draft.  Prakash Venkatesen (who did the fine work on the iFCP MIB update draft) has signed
	up to work on this one, and I've heard from Mark Bakke (author of the original iSCSI MIB0 , so we have the
	editing team identified.

One can view this as two threads of WG activity:
- MPA draft, then iSER.
- iSCSI draft discussions, then revise drafts in parallel with work starting on iSCSI MIB update
