Mark beat me to it!
I think it would be most worthwhile to have a face to face at GGF17 and I
would like to encourage folks to attend. As we have made much progress with
the version 2 Schemata I think it is important to maintain progress and keep
the visibility high. It would be very good if GGF17 acted as a focus to
prepare for the release.
My suggestion would be to have a focus meeting (maybe 1/2 to 2/3 of a day)
to go over the schemata and their release in some detail followed by a
standard NM-WG session.
I will contact Mark about restarting our phone calls as preparation.
Look forward to seeing you at GGF17
