Are there any real Friday sessions at IETF 61, or not?
Someone tried to put v6ops on Friday am at IETF 60, before shifting
it out... it would be nice to either have IETF run out to 2-3pm and
have some real sessions, or simply make Friday officially BoFs only...
so far, the proposal I have the most sympathy for is to add a post-lunch
Friday session. The San Diego agenda was NOT easy on many!
For the last "n" meetings, we have always started out with Friday morning
as "real sessions"; as the agenda has developed, the secretariat has tended
to fill in Friday last, and people have tended to ask for "not Friday"
meetings - which has been accomodated by the secretariat.
Sometimes this has led to Friday being no sessions, or Friday having just
"odd" sessions (like second slots). Last time, it was pretty full.
So we're starting out the same as last time: Friday is real.
But - I think "BOF only" is a non-starter; BOFs are our official procedure
for having an IETF face-to-face discussion on whether or not to start a
working group. Having all of them on top of each other would be - to put it
mildly - not optimal.
(Yes, some BOFs have other purposes. But this is one of them.)
