Hi Nishal,

Thanks for your email and proposal.

assuming [1] we keep numbering WG issues, this should be DBWG-2.

I'd like to invite all others; please give your input.


see email(s) from July 2nd.
100% of the one response(s) were in favour, I believe we can give a
little time to get some more voices for or against.
