[xacml] Next F2F meeting...
We will go with
whatever has the greatest number of votes (unless the number is too small to
make a productive meeting, in which case we should consider a different time
Please vote for a date
and a place by next Thursday, the 23rd; I will summarize and post the
results on Friday, May 24th.
Well, I've received exactly four
votes, as follows:
Bos, Ott, LA (in order of preference) ; either date
Bill: LA ; either date
Ken: LA ; 20-21
Michiharu: any of the three locations
These results lean toward

CANNOT attend a particular date/location. If I can't distill from all
this at least 8 "OK"s for a particular date/location, then I don't think we
can have a meeting in June.
P.S., Not to try and
influence the voting in any way, but I just thought I'd mention that June is
typically the nicest time of year in Ottawa. (Fall is very beautiful,
with all the leaves changing colour, etc., but I'm hopeful that we will not
still be meeting for XACML 1.0 in the fall.) As Tim has said, we like
you all far too much to invite you to Ottawa at any other time of year!
:-) So, if you ever wanted to see Canada's capital city, this might be a
