is cross-posting really necessary?

I thank Christian for advising the SG16 mailing list as to the MEGACO
activities.  I don't monitor the MEGACO list because I simply do not have
time for all the detailed work.  However, I do believe that SG16 people
should be kept informed as to the general activities that are performed in
the name of SG16.

Abrogating the coding agreement from Berlin because it is inconvenient
should not be keep hidden from the SG16 group.  The AD/Chair may determine
consensus for IETF, but not for ITU.  In ITU, consensus is determined by the
Rapporteur, and that is not Tom Taylor.

The agreed proposal for dual coding standards was an attempt to finesse the
unresovable disagreement over the coding standards.  Abrogating this
agreement may only extend the discussion.  This can only impede a JOINT

I don't know if others agree, but I would suggest that the conversation
remain on just ONE mailing list so that people on both lists do not receive
two of everything.

If there is interest from SG16 members to follow this discussion, you can
either join the Megaco mailing list, or consult the Megaco mailing list
archives. Then cross-posting is not needed.
