Technical Summary The IETF holds three in-person meetings per year to discuss and understand issues. However, various emergencies can make a planned in-person meeting infeasible. The document contains recommendations for the LLC to apply when cancelling or postponing meetings under different conditions. Working Group Summary Early in the process, the inclusion of governmental travel advisories generated some controversy but they were later removed from the text. Document Quality The document has been thoroughly reviewed by several participants in the working group and has been discussed multiple times in the virtual meetings. Personnel Amelia Andersdotter is Document Shepherd. Lars Eggert is Responsible Area Director.
