I include Ron's message as I received it (headers trimmed):

Hi gang,

For those of you making travel plans, the URC BOF is Thursday,
1300-1500. The URN BOF is Monday, 1930-2200

The letter N definitely puts in an appearance.

And before any WGs are set up, perhaps it's worth considering how best
to serve the goals of focus and efficiency.  For example, I presently seem
to be getting around 4 copies of every message: 1 direct to me, and one
from each of the ur{i,c,n} lists.  If everything has to be crossmailed,
wouldn't one WG be simpler?
