I think it will help.

I suggest a team is set to do that because Adiel might be off busy doing
something else, if it will ever happen including the Techinical Directors
etc... for it to happen for they got to sign off most of these new
technologies that come along in their businesses!

Untill they do nothing can be done like Alan just put it right.


It's because some of these guys don't see the importance at all. And trust
me on this it might not take one meeting with them to have their minds

A lot still needs to be done in regard to awareness both to the technical
teams and the Directors etc .. in any form that can help.

Key features to be included is having them understand that v6 enabling needs
to be in their priority list too way above.
