[ppml] "Recommended Practices" procedure

This issue had a big discussion about this at the RIPE-52 meeting now  
on-going in Istanbul, and I believe
that a resolution similar to 2005-1 is likely to result from it. Are  
you going to ignore them and the other communities.

I would suggest a BOF at the Montreal IETF. Here are the parameters  
for doing this :

-- Cut-off date for requesting a session: Monday, June 5 at 17:00 ET  
-- Preliminary agenda published for comment: Friday, June 9 by  
midnight ET.
-- Cut-off date for requests to reschedule a session: Wednesday, June  
14 at
09:00 ET (13:00 UTC/GMT).
-- Final schedule published: Monday, June 19 before midnight ET.

Submitting Requests for Working Group and BOF Sessions

Please submit requests to schedule your Working Group sessions using  
the "IETF
Meeting Session Request Tool," a Web-based tool for submitting all of  
information that the Secretariat requires to schedule your sessions.
