We are very interested. Nilan presented MCTP in the Hackathon and has been working on the MCTP architecture for Intel platforms. It will be good to work together.

Personally, I'd prefer *not* to form a workgroup at the moment; we can
discuss things here on the list, rather than separating those
conversations from the rest of the OpenBMC community. I also don't think
we need any of the formality of a workgroup at this stage.
Essentially, forming a WG just means we'd have meetings and a separate
mailing list. The former means that some attendees of the WG have to
have late nights to attend, and the latter separates the MCTP
discussions from the rest of OpenBMC.
However, we can certainly revisit this if conditions warrant it.
Let me know if you have any strong opinions one way or the other.
With that in mind, and since a few folks have expressed interest, I'll
share some of my initial sketches to this list soon. I'll be sure to
include MCTP in the subject to make things findable.
