I think that you've come up with a much better charter for this group. Out of curiosity, do you think that the group should also help sponsor the development of open source tools to help monitor DNS-related issues, or evaluate DNS-related tools (either open source or commercial)? I ask because I am the current maintainer for "doc" (a DNS debugging tool) and I am (theoretically) also a co-maintainer for dnswalk (another DNS debugging tool). I say theoretically because I have not yet started to actively work with the dnswalk code, and I don't think that Dave Barr has done anything with it since moving the project to SourceForge. If I could get some sponsorship for some work like this, that would help me justify to my employer my work in this field, and would help me deliver improved tools to the community. In addition, I am aware of some upcoming commercial tools that I think that at least some DNS WG members might be interested in. What about inviting spokespeople from the respective companies to attend future meetings, and perhaps get involved with the DNS WG (if they are not already)? -- Brad Knowles, <brad.knowles at skynet.be> "They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety." -Benjamin Franklin, Historical Review of Pennsylvania.
