Affiliate Groups

Affiliate Groups are groups for IETF participants to discuss hobbies and outside interests. They do not do IETF work!

Key Info

Affiliate Groups (AG)  are not official IETF groups - they are a way for IETF participants to self-organize around a shared, non-IETF activity (like hobbies, outside interests, etc). 

They are not IETF Working Groups, they do not do IETF work, they don't produce documents, they don't represent the IETF in any way. They are largely a social activity, for things like rock-climbers, HAM operators, whiskey lovers, and similar.  

Community India

Targeted towards increasing participation from India. We organize get-together during the IETF meeting and use this list to coordinate local events in India.

or for general questions regarding diving in areas around IETF meetings.


List



Warren Kumari (warren@kumari.net) is helping catalog these - if you know of an existing group which should be listed here, please send him a short summary, and pointer to the list info page. If you'd like to start a new group / mailing list, please follow the Non-Working Group Email List Guidelines process. To help keep things organized, affiliate group lists should be called <something>-ag.
