   Russ Housley asked me to make this list aware of an IESG discussion
about difficulties finding WG co-chairs with an assured travel budget.
There seems to be consensus that the absence of both co-chairs creates
problems during the week-long IETF meetings, but that such situations
will arise as travel budgets contract.

   As part of the discussion, one AD mentioned that Virtual Interim
Meetings are being seriously considered. (I have noted three announcement
of Virtual Interim meetings recently.)

   Another AD mentioned co-chair resignations specifically because of
travel limitations.

   Can we do anything to help?
