[IGFmaglist] Draft Agenda for Virtual meeting II

I do not support postponing the deadline.  Certainly not at this point
when there are several weeks yet to go.  Human nature being what it is,
postponing the deadline today may postpone the start-work date for some
as well.

I suggest that the secretariat, as is its practice, be open to lenience
for those requesting extra time at the last minute, but think it is far
too soon to postpone.

Instead I suggest we remind people, especially those in our circles of
reference, often of the deadline and how it is approaching.
