Hi, Jaakko and All:

Thanks for clarifications that you will produce a new H.323 Annex H that
will be basis for discussions and bringing contributions.

It will also be noted that further clarifications have been provided by me
related to the MGA message via email in the SG16 reflector because TD-56
does NOT reflect the correct view.

It has been observed rightly by you that we could not make sufficient
progress in the last teleconferences. If Mr. Korpi makes frequent travels,
our progress may be slow.

Going forward we have the following to do:

1. We will start email discussions as far as practicable on continuous basis
and update the document at a certain interval as appropriate based on the
conclusion made via email. Email discussions are very helpful (also
legitimate) because people can take their time to think about the matter and
provide responses appropriately. Moreover, the email goes to the every
member of the SG16.

2. We will also participate in the teleconferences as we will be deciding
very soon (Mr. Korpi will help us).

If any member has any questions related to the process, please let us know.

Best regards,
Radhika R. Roy
