I was at the IETF meeting in Oslo and hence could not attend the meeting. 

It is very certain that automatable scenarios is in very high demand -
there are two initiatives that immediately come to mind: the new work on
congestion management between peers and also the upcoming work on
multiplexing connections.

However, both are just in the start up phase and so I think the best thing
to do is to get in contact with people involved and start looking at how we
can benefit from each other.

Also, I strongly believe we need a fully operational repository linked to
the tracking system before we can promote the WCA work for real. Our
current target of the next IETF meeting in DC (plenary for examples) is the
right place.

The instructions for creting a new forum is at

(it requires direct access to the machine on which it is running)

I just created a document review forum which you can find at

I think that would be an excellent idea - and by then we will have much
more data to present in an organized manner.
