Dear all,

The subject line may be partly incorrect, but that is my current question: 
Is the VNRG just dormant or has the overall interest in the work of RG passed away?

We had the last meeting at the Beijing IETF meeting and also some lively discussion afterwards. 

One of the areas of discussion was (amongst many others):
- openflow vs. forces
- how forces would fit in virtual networks
- do we need tunnel headers for virtual networks on the wire or not?
- definition of acid tests 

What do you see is important for the RG right now or what is missing?

I'm looking forward to your feedback.

  Martin (as RG co-chair)
