Since several people have asked for a list of the people and
organizations involved... here (attached) is the list of participants
in the meeting of 14/15 Feb where much of the development work for this
document took place, and where the end product of the work done there
(which is almost identical to the version which has now been published)
was approved by unanimous acclamation. There were others who wanted to
be there but could not come, but still participated in online
discussions around and about the meeting, including for developing the
“principles” submission to the NetMundial meeting (as well as an
“institutional roadmap” contribution, which will come out soon).

the Internet Exchange of India. The latter had no role in organising the
