Bill, Jeremy asked participants to upload any background paper that they 
may want to being to the notice of the participants and I did that. Do 
you have any problem with that?

Would you please point me to where I proposed any such thing?

Yes, IGF working groups! Sure enough. I am a great fan of them. Just 
that when a CSTD WG (working group) on IGF improvements was actually 
considering such things, our efforts to include setting up of IGF 
working groups in the WG's report seemed not to find any real support. 
Was that not the right time to ask for instituting IGF working groups.
