I have the feeling that we're talking past one another. I knew that
Vickram and Arun had taken on some responsibility for WSFII's

to manage the extended stream, or whatever that portion might be called.

umbrella organization that includes several stake holders, and some
conversations about vision and objectives have not been shared. I
look forward to sorting out common objectives and moving forward.
