* Roll call
* PROPOSED to accept the minutes of the 25th February 2009 telecon:

ACTION-44: Yves to take care of zakim bridge for F2F

Alternatives could be a cheaper mini-multi-group meeting held in MIT 
(Boston) early 2010.

zakim is based on US clocks, would you like to have the telecon one hour
