At least enough for a BOF, at which point we can vote on whether to get
Working Group status.

A quick poll - how many here have IETF experience? I don't have any more
than attending the last one and being involved in the HTML and HTTP
efforts. Someone with more experience than I will be needed to help
shephard this to fruition.

The IETF meeting is being held in Danvers, Massachusetts, US 3-7 April 1995.

The 3rd WWW conference is April 10-14, 1995, Darmstadt, Germany,
essentially the next week.

Sounds like it'll be a fun month!
