A cross-RALO collaboration would be excellent if there is interest in the
respective RALOs to take on this issue. In the past, RALOs have had
different prioritization for IDN related issues. I think some
awareness-raising is needed among RALOs to help them understand the nature
of the problem. It is a problem of relevance to users worldwide.
A webinar before ATLAS II in London and / or discussion during ATLAS II in
London would be a good opportunity to do it. Would you be willing to help
shepherd process (i.e., make sure a discussion happens on the topic)?
