En la lista de gendispatch de IETF 
(https://www.ietf.org/mailman/listinfo/gendispatch) se está discutiendo 
el tema de diversidad, incluyendo cuestiones como diversidad geografica, 
y otras tantas (cosas que afectan directamente a la participación desde 
la región).

No veo a nadie de la region.

No deberia el/los chairs de este grupo (ietf-lac), minimamente, 
participar en dicha discusión?

Sino pareciera que el grupo ietf-lac@ se tratara de un brazo de 
"outreach" de IETF, lo cual sería bastante preocupante.....

How does the wariness affect IETF participation?

Is the (current) IETF viewed as an "unsafe" organisation?
