We suggested recording the XWG, and possibly Board calls several months ago.
Intel was strongly against it, to the point of threatening not to participate if we turned on the recording.
The Intel representative was quite surprised to find out that Intel personnel were participating in OFIWG calls that were recorded.
So we gave up on that idea.
