It would be good if someone reviewed how the IETF worked at the conference.
A lot of software developers would benefit from understanding more.
I gave a talk like that at Usenix a few years ago -- feel free to point
folks at the talks/ietf-usenix/ietf-usenix.htm file on my Web page.
Note, of course, that many -- most? -- free software advocates do not
like the IETF's policies on patents in its protocols. But that's a
separate can of worms; let's *not* debate that again now...
