Minneapolis IETF and Sieve - BOF or what?

Well, I know it seems like I just asked this, but I've gotten the periodic
nudge from the IETF secretariat that's issued prior to IETF agenda
scheduling, saying 'do you want to schedule something at Minneapolis?' The
March meeting kinda sneaks up on you.
The dates, FYI, are March 15-19th. Yes, just about sixty days away. The
next meetings after this are in July in Norway, and in November in
Washington (DC). The next meeting after that is in March 2000, in Adelaide,
Australia. The next North American meeting after that won't be until at
least the third quarter of 2000, insofar as I know.
For practical purposes, then, for most North American participants, I think
we've got our choice of Minneapolis in March or Washington in November for
any possible short-term BOF or WG meetings.
I'd again remind the list that we've had one formal BOF already; we're
allowed a maximum of two on the same topic, after which we go to WG or
abandon-in-place, at least to the extent that we won't get another shot at
an IETF agenda slot on the same topic.
We have to get Area Director (Patrik and Keith's) approval for any proposed
scheduling request, I would note, so it's probably best to talk about this
Following our informal meeting at Orlando (see Tim's message from 12/7/98
titled 'Sieve Meeting Notes'), I personally think we're in very good shape
with respect to 'Sieve 1.0'. (I'm calling the current draft 'Sieve 1.0' to
mean the future, final version of what we're working on now.) We've got
multiple implementations from a variety of client and server vendors
