Bill,
I do not have a good answer about will kibitzers be allowed at the 
interoperability testing yet. First, what I do know is that there 
is room for 40 people at Stardust Labs. Because I do not know how many 
people will be attending that are participating, I don't know how much 
room will be left for non-participants. Secondarily, the IETF requires 
that the results of the interoperability testing by specific vendor 
not be made publicly available. Therefore they frown on non-participants 
being present at the testing because they think the likelihood of the 
results being "leaked" increases. In fact, the IETF feels so strongly 
about the interoperability testing results not being made publicly 
available that all of the people present at the interoperability 
testing may have to sign some form of a brief nondisclosure 
agreement that states that they will not disclose the specific 
results by vendor of the interoperability testing. Chris and I
are trying to get the details of the nondisclosure agreement
nailed down so there is some review time before the testing.
Regards,
Lloyd

     Lloyd, 
     
     Question related to the proposed schedule change. Is it correct that 
     the interoperability tests are just for those directly participating 
     (and paying the fee) in the test? Or are kibitzers (sp?) allowed as at 
     the Portland prebakeoff?
     
     Thanks
